    Eric is there a way to tell if you have African bees? The reason for this question I have picked up a few swarms this week and everything was fine till I pickup some bees from Kingston. I did not get the queen but had two hives with a low count of bees but both had confirmed queens. I split the bees from Kingston into these hives. One is fine the other has very hostile bees coming from the bee yard fifty feet or more to challenge and sting and have done so. Any comments welcome. I am out of town now but will be home tomorrow. Thank you Jim Sollenberger
