Helped a friend today do 4 splits and pull some honey supers. She lost her husband, about a month ago, and was a good for her to learn more and start transitioning to keeping bees.
Split 3 hives and bees were pretty docile. Man, got to the 4th hive and they were mad. I've never seen them so aggressive. 5 or 6 of the ladies managed to get my forehead through my suite. Guess I'll be figuring something else out. I was being bombed 10 times a second and at some points, so thick, couldn't see through them.
Photo for some sympathy. 😁😁
