Ok, so I’ve been trying to calm this hive down, as the bees are way too aggressive for the urban environment.
So far both queens I have installed have been killed by the hive. This is getting too hard, I think I am going to have to let this one go as I can’t afford to risk somebody getting stung while trying to get them to accept a new queen. It will take a month or so, then I can start again.
I hate doing this but they are really hot, with a cloud covering me on every inspection and following me about 100 meters back to my car.
