Re: Why are my bees starting to chase us?
I have had the occasional bee get like this lately. First I figure it is a guard bee that was overly sensitive do to lack of nectar and heat right now. Plus looking around in their hive may have just set them off to my scent. From other information bees seem to have a memory to some degree that lasts a couple of days. For the most part I try to skip being to close to the hive for a day and let them forget me. otherwise I suspect that they pick up my scent any time I am near and from memory go on alert. That seems to work pretty well.
