I split my power colony today and they ate me up. I got stung 8-10 times through my jeans, overcoat, SHEEPSKIN gloves. One got in my glove and hit me the worst as he BURIED the stinger to the hilt. I had to break the whole colony part and they were fine until I got to the brood area and they let me have it. AT least 20 followed me the 100 yds to the truck and I had to walk them off by walking another 100 yds to get them to go away. That was my first split. Any time I get into the brood area of this colony they go nuts.
