When people here I keep bees, The first thing they generally ask me is
How much honey do you make?
Do you get stung?
Which I answer..
Yes! I get stung all the time
But like most other bee keepers I don’t mind it at all. It’s all the other things I don’t want to sting, bite or eat which bother me.
And on the list right now of annoying things are the horse flies.
Man these things hurt and they seem to be able to bite through parts of my clothes.
