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?

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.
