My bees tolerate my tractor and bush hog fairly well, my new zero turn John deere brings them out for war. That said, I can mow closer and between the hives with the mower. My next thought was putting headlights on and mowing after dark. I wanted to know if the bright lights on a mower would make it even worse? The mower is always available and I use it often, so adding a trip to the hives is easy. Putting the bush hog on the tractor is fairly rare. My other option is too suite up for war and go mow anyway. But it makes me nervous when they are in full attack mode. I had a couple of scary adventures removing hives from old barns that turned out to be Africanized bees. I don't do that anymore, not worth it.
