I have fed my bees all summer and never did I see them follow me back to the garage and all over the empty gallon jugs that I use. The are acting crazy! Following me, landing on me, buzzing all around me and I did not even touch the setup today. Maybe because I work in a paint booth all day and wore the same clothes and boots? Maybe they are curious about that smell?

They're descendants of a marked queen and inherently are looking for a paint high. Or, you smell like dey mama!  grin
