Hey tlozo, what's wrong with feet? They get us where we want to go while absorbing thousands of pounds of pressure without much complaining. Pretty amazing if you ask me! OK, well it's now swollen a lot more and hurts impressively, after being on my feet today...and I'll spare you any more pictures! :-D I think foot up, ice, and benedryl are sounding good right about now.
I had to make sure I knew where the queen was so I went through the entire hive. I moved some brood to another hive and shook off bees into the hive box. The hive was jam-packed and they were pretty much everywhere, including the ground. I was keeping watch on my legs because so many were crawling around my feet but forgot to look down after a while. She or they just got between the tongue of my boot and my sock and when compressed, wham-o.
Definitely I am going with tennis shoes and double socks. Good idea, Bjorn bee. Thanks.
