Re: Fat Man Bees? or FatBeeMan?
I do not believe the bees sold by DTFB or David are particularly more docile than any others of the ligusta or or carnica ssp. David claims his are the same stock as DTFB's bees but he has been open mating for quite some time so I doubt they are still that closely related. David's do appear very gentle due to being mostly nucs that you see. His full sized hives are gentle too based on the few videos he has shown of them, but so are mine most of the year. One of the best things about Barnyard Bees is that they sell mated queens late into the year. Check out Jadeguppy's thread. She lives near Pensacola and had some of Don's bees.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
