One thing I have learned is about harvesting. We use a propolis trap as an inner cover so when we lift the lid we don't get that initial death squadron flying out to sting us and thereby getting the rest of the hive riled up...
If I was in SoCal, I'd be keeping horizontal hives with soft inner covers and call it done - none of these "lifting the lid" and letting the "death squadron out" things.
