I was gone last week for 3 days and before I left the girls were happy and content. When I returned the one hive had turned aggressive, I mean walk near the hive come boiling out aggressive. I could not go in the bee yard without getting popped so I have no video of that happening. I later discovered some Skunks had moved in under our bunk house. Putting 2 and 2 together I constructed a removable fence that I just lift out of the way when inspecting. The girls have calmed right down because the Skunks couldn't get close to bother them every night. The Skunks have since been dispatched, but I will leave the fence up for a while in case there are others. The girls have adapted to the fence nicely, below is a video of them working through the fence.

Hey Colino that was a good idea, that skunk fence. Fairly quick and easy construction and easy enough to remove when not needed. It could double as a mulch bin when not being used as a skunk fence!
