    Wow, very interesting! I think I would be freaking out in that situation, calm bees or not.

    Congrats! That's really exciting. My husband's father and grandfather both kept bees when he was a kid. He has a lot of fond memories of helping his dad with the hive. Good luck.

    I just had a funny daydream of my mailman coming to the door and handing me a big package, and then he says "what's that noise?" and I say "IT's BEES!!!!" And then he drops it and the package bursts open and they swarm.


    Haha

    they don't get at all pissed off when you're banging the box around?

    The most simple answer is they are honey bees, I have stepped on one bare foot without being stung and the bee was fine I was shocked I wasn't stung.

    Honey Bee's are super nice, they aren't aggressive at all. They can get upset if you open a more mature hive. But you would be Pissed too if i started taking the roof off your hive often. They can be aggressive, if lets say a skunk keeps pestering the hive? They will get mad they just kinda assume, thats how African bee's became so aggressive, that race of Apis melifera just is that way thats why they are aggressive. But People up north don't have to worry as much about Americanized bee's.

    Jlap, They would know that their were bee's in the package they arrive pretty much how you saw the guy holding it. If they dropped it they would probably stay in a lump on ground for a min or two.

    But when people here the word bee's they generally just think of something like say a wasp, similar coloring and it is just what comes to mind. Its allot like how you here Skunk, but you can still keep them as pets with out a problem but theirs that bad smell rep with them. Bee's just have a bad rep.
