Some of my bees will bite or pull hair as a precursor to stinging, happened to me on my last inspection. It definitely gets my attention and can be somewhat painful at times. I was curious if anyone else has noticed this behavior with their bees and could this be associated with mite biting? It seems I read something on Dave Cushman's site regarding something similar, but I've never seen much documentation on these behaviors.
