What do you consider a "hot" hive?
I have a hive that seems pretty feisty and defensive. I've been stung when just sitting in my backyard about 20-feet away. I've always had Italians that were very gentle but the queen in this hive was open-mated here in Northern California. This is a first for me so I'm looking for thoughts on what is in the range of normal and if I should re-queen. I'm in a suburban area so I'm very cautious about having aggressive bees near my neighbors.
