I admit I've gotten too ****y. My two hives (first year) were very gentle until recently. I have been stung replacing the entrance feeders recently. I don't believe I am allergic but the first stings produced regular flushing and chills at the rate of three or four a minute for about a day. The latest sting on my finger did not produce this effect but rather merely swelled the finger to the point that after two days it still will not bend. Am I developing an immunity? Whether it matters, I have advanced kidney disease and am getting close to kidney failure.
