I always tell my friend beekeepers and any of my other friends who want to come work the bees with me that most of the time when you get stung, you are doing something stupid. I am the proof to this.
I worked some hives this evening when it was nice out and a slight wind. I went over to one hive at the house and killed the old queen as she was laying badly and the hive was really weak. Will combine a stong nuc tomarrow.
All went well than I took a peak at all the other hives and all seemed well so I wentinto the garage and got my wife as we were going on a nightly walk.
On the way back, we went by the hives and I wanted to get some feed bottles to refill later. I went up to a side of a hive and WAMMMMM. I got nailed on the forhead. I ran for it while my wife was lauging.
Now I type this with a patch of tootpaste on my forhead.
