Hi,

Today we went out to weed around our bee area.  A few bees flew around us aggressively, and then stung my wife's head.  This is the first time they have ever seemed to be aggressive.  Could it be due to the recent cold front?  Hunger?  

There was no raider activity, so I do not have any idea what could have incited them.

Any input on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, This time of year the bees are a little more defensive. Rainy season is over and the days are getting shorter. The bees are in winter (Lol) mode and are possessive of any stores that they have. Best to keep a smoker handy.

Thanks Angie.  What you said seems to go along with what I googled, but I did not entirely believe it due to living in South Florida.  I gave them sugar water today.  I was hoping to take care of those weeds while it was cooler.
