Miss Bee Hiving

Getting stung by a bee is no fun but having your arm twice the size makes a great story.

Two weeks away from my girls and I start to get antsy. I wonder how they’re doing, if they’re getting enough food and water, if they’re liking their environment, if I’m a good landlord. It’s been 5 weeks since I first started the colony and in just the last 2 weeks, the colony population has exploded. As a newbie, I didn’t expect to see so many guard bees. No wonder I got stung once in the face and four times elsewhere on my arms, hands, and fingers.

Occupational hazard.

Next time I will wear thicker clothing and maybe some pants.
