I went home today at lunch with the intentions of checking on one of my hives that has been struggling, moreless to check stores/feed. Nice and sunny out today about 58 degrees, figured it would be a quick in an out deal no need for smoker....wrong decision! I popped the top, everything looked good til I lifted out the first frame-man did they make a BEE line straight for the veil. No worries, just purchased new zip in veil no way they can get to me; this is an incorrect statement! There is a 1/4" gap where zippers meet and as I leaned over to grab my frame rest I saw her enter into my domain through said gap. :shock: Needless to say my adam's apple is a little larger today and swelling nicely as I type! I mean a dead center, direct hit....I love beekeeping; who needs tatoo's!
