Any South Africans here?

Anyone from South Africa on here? Not Cape honeybees, African bees. I am in Joburg and I have a hive and I'd like to trap a swarm but from my experience the African bees are quite aggressive so now I have a placement problem.

I'm a South African but I know nothing of bees...... What do you mean with a placement problem? Do you need to move your hive?

Yeah I have purchased from Beequip.

I need to set up my hive but I want to choose a good place where the bees won't get aggressive when the dogs run past. I also have a baby.
