I'm just curious what kind of stories you guys have, you folks with hives in your backyard. I'm a newbee that installed my first packages two days ago. My hives are located in my backyard about 50 feet from my patio. 24 hours after installing, I sat in a chair about 7 feet from my hives without protection on and the bees could care less that I was there. It was great watching them do their thing. About an hour later I was on my patio 50 feet away throwing the ball for my dog and a bee would not leave me alone. She never landed on me but buzzed my face for like 10 minutes. Do you guys ever get stung for no reason while minding your own business 50 feet away?
