got stung today by one of my own girls. I wasn't even near the hives, but noticed that she was pissed at all get-out at something, then that something turned into me. I was by the side of the house and saw her pinging the side of the house repeatedly... as if she expected the house to back off. Then she started pinging my head so I made a mad dash for the door but she went in for the kill too fast and nailed me right on the jugular. I'm pretty sure this is the same bee that's been harassing me the last 2 days... there's just been one but she's been all about letting me know how much she doesn't like me. When I was mowing the lawn earlier I put on my veil because I had to mow up around the hives and I know at least one of them has been a little hot, mostly because I keep having to disturb them like 2 or 3 times a week lately... and probably this same bee was out there harrassing me, but it was just that one. At one point it even looked like another bee tried to pull her off of me... but she wasn't having it. Oh well, she's dead now. Good riddens!
