    I've only had a hive for 3 weeks now but each of the 3 times I've visited the hive with my veil on, it has not failed that my nose will start itching, need wiping or I'll feel like I need to spit.
    :lol:

    The bees make it happen so you will give them an entrance. They are just waiting for you to open the veil. :lol: :Dancing: :mrgreen:

    Don't know about that, but it never seems to fail after I suit up and just get started on the first hive, I have this sudden need to :eek: and trust me, when you gotta go, walk well away from the hive, you don't want any accidents! :shock:

    Well, I'll be grotesque and honest. Yes, I've forgotten I had a veil on and spit. I immediately remembered I had a veil on :eek: .

    yes, the bees have some sort of super power that will always....and I mean ALWAYS make my nose itch, eyes get something in them, or my hair will all of a sudden jump out of it's otherwise useful scrunchie and tickle the tar out of my cheek until the veil has to come off. The cell phone thing is a constant too, if not mine then the kids.

    after 50 with the bees these problem cure themselves. every thing aches so much an itch hardly has a chance, you have no hair to tickle anything and you could not hear the cell phone if your life depended on it. as to perrybee's problem there is always depends.

    Either that or go whole hog and take up naked beekeeping! Seems I saw a video of a couple folks doing that.
    Would give true meaning to pi$$ing the bees off!

    That's not so bad, at least it goes through the screen. I had been welding outside all day and hocked up a big one and spit it right inside my welding helmet, needless to say it was time to take a break.

    I just about split when I read this. I remember doing the same thing in my truck, could have sworn the window was open! :shock:

    Speaking of chewing tobacco, how on earth can anyone do that? I had someone give me a wad of it once, said tuck in under your bottom lip and let it set a spell. Damn near burnt my lip off after a couple of minutes. Burnt like he!! for an hour after too. Couldn't wash the stuff out and get the taste away. Cursed him for a few days after as well. Jeez!

    I'm with you on that one. My dad always chewed tobacco. The old Day's Work brand that came in the shape of a deck of cards. He'd cut off a plug and stick it in his mouth and chew on it for hours. I thought I could do that so I asked him one day when we were plowing if I could have a chew. I was 14 years old and he cut me off a little bit. I asked him how often should I spit and he said, "spit each time the valve stem comes around on the tractor tire. Don't swallow it or it'll make you sick."

    I found out very quickly that wasn't near enough spitting for me. The longer I left that in my mouth the more spit I produced until I was almost spitting constantly and still swallow some. I finally spit it all out and have never tried chewing again. The belly ache that produced was enough for a lifetime.
