I always figure if they are too aggressive, they might not give me a chance to suit up, so I suit up every time, just to be sure for that one time that may or may not ever happen when they all come after me at once.

Many folks have thanked me for posting a swarm capture on our website. They say it gives them the confidence to catch a swarm themselves.
A word of caution: Always wear your veil and when you are new at beekeeping try to have a mentor on hand or someone to help in case things go wrong. Enjoy the videos.
