This queen has been a pain for a year now, every time you open the box they come flying out stinging, the guy I got them from takes them to Florida in the winter, maybe africanized genes got with them?
anyhow check it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYD_E58o0Is

Maybe you should requeen it before her drones spread genes around in your area.

Didn't think of that, I'm putting out a lot of 100% Saskatraz though.

IF you recently requeened the hive, you could take a sample of worker bees (like doing an alcohol wash but leave them in alcohol) and have them assessed for Africanized characteristics.
You'd be doing your neighborhood a favor by finding out.
