Re: Went bare handed last night - got stung
Back when I first tried going gloveless this is how I got stung too. I haven't tried since. I get local swelling when stung. That was 2 years ago. I think I will start trying again. I will spray some home made bee robber on my hands, and begin only with gentle hives until I get better at it. I'd love to work gloveless. I will always cover my face though. I have a helmet with pocket veil for just checking on hives and mowing. No heat problem with those. Ultrabreeze jacket for everything else.
