I'm fairly allergic to bee stings.
While trying to flip over the inner cover on the hive on Saturday, I tripped and banged into it, causing the bees to come flying out at me, ready to sting.
Man, they were angry. I wonder if they are still reliving the honey stealage from the other day.
Anywho, I got stung 9 times; 5 on my back, once on my head, once on my eyebrow, and once on each arm. I look like a boxer who went too many rounds-one eye is fairly swollen. My arms blew up and they ITCH. My joints hurt. The side of my head is all puffed out, and my back is nicely bumpy.
I'm going to need another plan of attack if I plan on keeping bees--which I do. I'm thinking armor? Having my husband do it? Keeping a doctor on retainer? I haven't decided yet. Stay tuned for a solution (I hope)!
