Re: Dogs around hives in backyard
My red dog snaps at anything flying by, and never gets stung. My black cat sleeps on the tele cover and is fine. My black-and-white (but mostly black) pointer/lab mix gets tagged anytime he comes within about 15 feet. Same story at two of my outyards with two other, dark dogs. I can't figure it. I mow right up to those colonies, weed whack around them, I do everything wrong and they're fine and gentle. But my one dog, and my host's dogs, sure get the snot stung outta them.
