Welcome to another Aussie Ula Ula. Anything you want to know about bees will be found here thanks to the broad knowledge of the members. The facility of Ventrilo is a convenient way to get quick answers, although I doubt where you are located broadband would be available unless you had satellite. You will get plenty of stories of stings and the various reactions to them.

Ula Ula.  Welcome to our forum.  This is a place where you can spend time, ask questions to get help, and tell us your stories, like you did.  You had an interesting night that night when you set up your bees.  Enjoy your stay with us.  Have a most wonderful and awesome day, Cindi
