in a matter of hours? I cut a hive out of a house 2 weeks ago and have been peeking in on them every day without protection..... I have a table/hivestand right behind them by my rabbit pens and have been using it for a work bench to DR. one of my rabbits eye(got ear mite solution in it so I am flushing it and putting antibiotic drops in it) for a week. today at 11 am my oldest son and I went to peek in on them...everything fine...at 3:30 my youngest son and went ti DR rabbit and just about the time we put her on the table bees started buzzing and stung him in the forehead and followed us about 20 feet from the hive.. Sun shine 81 degree temps so not thinking weather is the problem. just never seen them get that aggressive that fast.
