I wanted to open up some of the hives to check for honey. I was going to put on supers on some, but I wanted to do it fast so I didn’t smoke the bees.
I chose a strong hive for the first one. Last time I checked the second deep was about half full I wanted to see if it was full and put a super on it. I pulled the top feeder and a million bees stormed out, very angry with me. I was wearing my vintage bell bottom jeans and the bees flew up my legs and I was stung 20 or so times all the way up to my thigh. I was stung through the gloves four times on one hand and once on the other.
Next time I will smoke the girls and wear tight jeans.
