How to deal with flighty bees?

This may seem odd, but I haven't dealt with this previously so I figured I would check into others experiences.

This year I set up a few fresh hives using packaged bees and one of the hives is best described as super flighty; when I do hive inspections all the girls do a complete evacuation from the hive, including but not limited to literally jumping off the frames. I've never experienced anything like it.

By the time I'm done inspecting the boxes are all covered in bees and there are bees all over the ground. I would consider requeening, they are also a little fiesty, but they are going balls to the wall with performance. Needless to say I haven't seen the queen in almost two months

Anyone have any advice on how to deal with these girls?
