Re: something odd I noticed about my bees being aggressive - question
So you destroyed a supersedure cell (assuming it was the one).

Maybe they are queen-less as it is OR having a sub-standard queen needing replacement.
Loosing the only queen recovery cell would annoy me too.
The bad queen situation does drive the bees crazy (loosing a QC would help) - that could be a typical angry bee cause.
Speaking of ONE angry bee - I just tune these out as I have bigger fish to fry (to worry about a single bee is not worth it).
I normally have several angry bees that I ignore - else, I can not even do my job.
There is a normal threshold of angry-ness which you should notice and do something about it (pump smoke/quit the project ASAP/etc).
