Took my 9y/0 son out today as my smoker assistant today as I had 2 hives to look at, 1 was ready to split so as I was getting equipment we cracked the hive open and he went to smoking, we took 1 frame out and low and behold my jackets elastic is loose and a bee flew in and up to the face and right to the nose and she stung me, I turn and say son smoke my face and he stairs at me,?the face? Yes and he did we talked about it and what happened I tucked in my jacket and we made a nice split. I was getting the next nuc and my son smoked the entrance to the next hive, then I hear a scream and yell it on my face. I turn to him and he say a bee in in my veil. We stop and I look and try to calm him and find a ****roach that came out of his hat, he said he was done and walked back to the house, couple minutes pass and he is back out with is suit on saying it?s time to finish this up. Was so proud he cleaned out the ****roach and came back to finish the hive. Was proud of him
Then he kept telling me you got stung in the face. In the face. Hahaha tenor.gif

Agreed. If one can overcome the very real possibility of occasionally being stung in the face (and the swelling that ensues) has the makings of a fine beekeeper.

Good story- thanks for sharing. It brought a smile to my face.
