Here is a video of Dee Lusby working some very agitated bees. Can't say I have ever seen bees this ticked off...

No, mine haven't. If mine were that hot I'd find them somewhere else to live. I found one quote interesting "...and we're happy to let them re-queen themselves...."  

Given that they're in AZ, that might have something to do with it.

My hottest hot bees are no where near like these. She was pretty rough with them too. That might have played a big part of it.

I have run across cut-out like this, but I don't keep them. They usually end up in a bucket covered in soapy water.

That is an astounding video! She throws those boxes around like they were empty cardboard.

She's definitely a machine.

I've seen this- but only doing a cutout of an Africanized hive.
