This is why I say, "Never actively work bees without a veil". Everything else is optional, but, a veil is a necessity. If 50-100 angry bees attack your face, nose, eyes, ears, throat, you could have a disaster on your hands in a heartbeat. It is how most new beekeepers get into trouble. I can tell you two horror stories from this area by new beekeepers who thought they did not need a veil. Just not worth it.

Both videos very nice. You do good work. Would love to see you caution new beekeepers to wear a veil. Working bees without a veil, is equivalent to a Pro football player without a helmet, or a bridge builder with no safety lanyard.

Thanks, Mr. Beeman. Isn't that why you Posted it?

What was that line from Forrest Gump? No, it wasn't "Play w/fire your gonna get burnt." But that fits too.

No braggin', but, had that happened to me you wouldn't have noticed me getting stung. Experience. That's why it was funny. Learning and experience. Did y'all learn anything?
