Re: The Barefoot Beekeeper
Make sure to post the picture of how big your face got when you get stung. If you want to inspect bees with nothing on be my guest, but make sure you don't advise newbies that it's ok. My bees are very gentle. Most times I don't use smoke, but bees can get in a bad mood. On occasion all I have to do is take off the lid and there's an instant alarm pheromone with bees on my veil. And keep in mind that I run TBHs, Warres, and Langs. It seems to me that bees certainly react differently to inspections across all hives, but I wouldn't be caught dead in just shorts.
