I went to inspect my hive that I split about 10 days ago. I supered it when I did the split. the hive was nasty when I split it and worse when I went into inspect. The hive had 5 frames removed and 5 new ones replacing them. they are not fully drawn out yet, but they are on their way. Wanted to see if there was any eggs in the new comb. Didn't see any but was not able to make a good inspection since the bees were in a tizzy. Wanted to see if I hadn't removed the queen with the split. Had at least 100 bees stinging me on each hand. Had to turn the hose on my gloves to get the bees to calm. Don't see myself going into the brood chamber again. what would make this hive so aggressive. It wasn't that bad last year. It seemed to get more aggressive in the fall last year but now it is game on even with smoke. I don't think I could find the queen to requeen with all the aggressiveness. Would like to pinch that broad though. When is the best time to requeen? this is a 2nd year hive. Would like to get some honey since this hive is very strong. any help is appreciated.
