Number three hive, which we moved to Espoo, is the hive from hell. They are so moody and aggressive. But the colony is also very active, organised and productive. I guess that's the way it goes.
We added an F-box now that they are in position in the garden, it was getting a bit crowded in there and we do't fancy having to collect a swarm from one of our neighbours. The locals are used to bringing Zelda back when she goes walkabouts but I think they might draw a line at putting a few thousand bees in a sack and walking up the road with them.
One solution to the problem, would be to change the queen. That would have an almost immediate impact on the collective psyche of the colony. So, we will think about it.
