Maybe a dumb question.

Every time I do any work at night with the hies, it seems they are very aggressive. Even a swarm I got tonight
was right at dark and they were landing on me. Not like the other swarms I have got. They acted like a cut out. Head butting me, stung me on elbow.

Just wonder if they are landing on my suit so bad because of it being dark.

thats exactly right--while bees will fly at night, and do if needded, thats not preferred activity, and they certianly will crawl---everywhere.

again dont mess with bees anytime you wouldnt want the roof off your house. This includes night, THe girls like to crawl bite and sting anywhere they can get to your skin. and a flash light is a big no no
