You are in the out yard working hives its late August on one of the hottest days of the year. You have 10 hives in this yard. Wearing only a tee shirt, shorts, and veil. You are working along and about the 4th hive you notice scratch marks on the front of the hive and another tell tale sign that the hive may have had a visitor.(what is the sign) You lightly smoke this hive knowing from experience this hive is one of the calmest you have in your operation. You crack the top cover and pry the inner cover loose. Thats when all h### breaks loose. The bees are on you like hair on a dog. you drop the hive tool and back off. Your hive sets right on the edge of a overgrown timber. You instead take off into the meadow and these girls are mad and still on you. You are taking sting after sting while hundreds of bees are bumping and flying around you. While the girls are taking care of an intruder the other hives start helping themselves to the suddenly huge flow at the neighbors house so now you are getting stung while there is a fight going on back at the hive. How are we going to get out of this mess. We got to get the bees off of us. Stingers will need to be removed you have the alarm phereomon all over us and we need to stop the robbing and button up the hive. After this is done we have to figure out what in the world turned this normally calm hive into the hottest monster we ever seen.
