I just completed a 3 hour intro course to beekeeping & have decided to start a hive in the near future. I live in the USVI and both veteran instructors of the course use the local Africanized bees - said they "can" be aggressive at times (I can also be aggressive, especially in the morning if I don't get my coffee). The property where I live & where I'll be putting the hive(s) already has a large Africanized bee population - the wild hive is located in the top of a sugar mill 50' off the ground, untouched. I'd like to weigh the pros & cons of why I should or should not use the local bees, other than they are readily available. And if I tried to introduce another race of bees here, what hurdles would I face? Thanks for your help, Tom PS - I've noted several beginning bee books I'll be adding to my library - thanks to another thread in the forum.
