Dunno about that, What I DO know, is my bees do not like noise, nor do they like fast movements near the hives. I can piddle around their hives all day long as long as I ensure my movements are not fast or jerky. They’ll leave me alone, but try quickly walking around them, then your in for a nasty surprise.
I moved on hive some time back, at around 1000 AM. my son assisted. After explaining to him, no fast moves, what does he do, walks straight up to the hive and grabs the bottom ready to lift it, with the predicted result. Yet at the same time, I was on the opposite side and they never went anywhere near me. Dunno if he’ll ever give me a hand again with the bees. L.O.L.
