I have been stung sooooo many times today...my super came out just short enuff that i had to custom make frames for it...I did make the frames right...they came out well, but the way I built them on that table saw of mine woulda sent my old woodshop teacher to an early grave...sighhh...i gotta take something good out of this...ummmm...new lessons learned today...my bees CAN sting me through my gloves...it DID hurt when i get stung in the eye but NOT AS BAD as when i got stung in the nose (wear viel when bees are pissy)...when wearing viel and now braver...DO NOT BLOW ON PISSY BEES (most notably when in a tee shirt) my ferals AREN'T african cause they stopped chasing me after 450 feet (doc probly wouldn't like me running so fast after having 2 stents put in my ticker 2 weeks ago)...my dogs coat does NOT protect her from said pissy bees (buy viel for dog) after my 30th sting in the last few months i can now put to rest the rumor that you get used to it an it dont hurt as bad the first time (big big lie)...oh...and the bees that come to the light at night are not lost...they are mad because i kept them up past thier bedtime...hence the last sting of the day...i'll try again tomorow  rolleyes
