I have a hive that is a little aggressive, it's not that bad but I heard that you can rub an ointment on the back of your hand and it will help calm them down. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Never heard that one before. When you say aggerssive, are you talking cover you up with bees and follow you to the door, or just head butting? It could be a sign of other things such as queenlessness..

Just a little attitude. They are Russian. My Italians in another yard are nice and gentle. I thought maybe it was said like, healthy bee or something similar.
