I am a newbee. I built a kenya top bar style hive, caught a swarm in early May. I have just gotten my first sting and now I can't find my bread knife. I was fumbling around, she got under my jacket cuff and stung me on the back of the hand. I have tried to be pretty careful but now there are tons of bees, hive doing pretty good so far and they are getting a little buzzy protecting their honey. I do NOT want to drop a bar of bees so how do you stop yourself from jerking? Just get used to it I guess? I put on my gloves for the rest of the inspection but I don't like em.
