    It may sound inapropriate on a bekeeping forum, but, without any hesitation, I say YOUR health comes first. There are a lot of bees in this world and they can be replaced. There's only one you, and...

    As a Floridian, from the "Sunshine State" you should know---it's powdered sunshine, the kind that comes there in the winter when everyone else is under clouds and snow. :lol:
