I have four hives. One is a swarm I caught, the other are nuc's i bought. I have one nuc that is TOTALLY different from the rest. They won't use a top enterance, and they are pissy. The minute you open the top they are all over you, and yes I do use smoke. this Queen is very different from the other three in appearance, she is long and a yellow/gold. Somebody said possibly a Cordoban Italian ? None of my nucs were really strong when I got them, they had 3 frames when I got them they now have 5 1/2 of comb.Six weeks later. Question, would it help me to combine the pissy hive with a much calmer hive and do away the mean old Queen? While I don't get stung, I don't enjoy working her either. Thanks ahead for all replies.
