Lucky,  Even the wild populations seem to go up and down.  In general we 
figure that the mostly black bees are wild, and that the ones with two or 
more gold stripes probably have owners.  Anyone have any comments on the 
coloration of most wild honeybees?  They probably always have a lot of the 
old German strain in them.   A friend had some bees he'd been given, he 
complained they were flighty, nervous, prone to stinging, and black.  Sound 
like German bees?      Donna
