I don't understand your question, I've watched the video, folks running around not getting stung. Bees not attacking, out here where I'm at if they are in attack mode everybody within a city block or more of the hive gets tagged, the closer you are to the hive the more times you gonna get tagged. Those bees were a swarm, they voluntarily left the original hive and are relocating, bees in swarm mode aren't aggressive (as a general rule) as they have no brood or food stores to defend.

Those are real honey bees.

If they had been "african-nized" they would have swarmed something higher up.

In September we discovered a bee hive under the eave on the 2nd floor. Like a fool tried to use spray to clear them out. Needless to say I got stung, but it wasn't while I was on the ladder. I was a good 75' away.

Had to get a bee remover to handle it.

I'll upload the video later.

Per the BeeRemover African bees or colonized bees prefer their hives high up off the ground. Bees you find that are on the ground are going to be real honey bees.

Great Video ....


We followed an 18 wheeler with California plates from San Antonio to Houston yesterday hauling a full flat bed of bee boxes with the worker bees flying all over in a covered mesh tarp. Plenty were escaping and becoming windshield smears.

Never seen that before.
He was headed eastbound, maybe to NO.
