Chalk and Cheese!
Well I'm convinced the aggression is linked to MAQS. I went back to the hives today to put on a super. The bees were calm and not at all aggressive. This despite the fact It was humid, overcast and rain is forecast for the afternoon. Ok so I smoked the hive but that was only light and I was in the hive straight away.
So beware bees with MAQS! Mind you, I suppose if you lived in an acid environment for a week you'd be pretty pissed off!
