I have been slammed busy and not had a chance to do anything about this since I posted. I was able to go out Friday afternoon and they were still alive and well. So this morning I double suited up and duct taped my pant legs shut. I made up some home made HBH and put it in a pump up sprayer.
It was cloudy, pretty breezy and about 65deg this morning, so I prepared for the worse.
I went in with heavy smoke, then pulled the tarp back and sprayed them down pretty good as they were starting to get rilled up. After the spray they seemed to really calm down. They had built some bur comb that I had to clean but I got them back on their stand without any issue. I probably could have just worn my jacket and jeans like normal and probably never gotten stung.
Went and checked them at 3pm so about 7 hours later. They were working as normal and had already drank half of each quart of 1:1 I put on as a top feeder.
