Had this thought last night while in the shower (don't ask). Ok, it was after a removal job where I took a few stings, so I was nursing my wounds. I've read of eating garlic products to repel mosquitoes just by your body odor. Don't know of the validity, as I've never tried it. But I wonder, would the same thing, or something similar, possibly discourage bees from wanting to land on/sting you? Just an odd thought, has anyone read of or heard of anything like this?
