you might have used a little to much.  it doesn't take much to clear them.  try a little less next time.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Yeah, prolly a bit too much in particular if its as hot there as it is here. A little goes a long way with that stuff. I know it takes my breath away and I can walk away from it, much less if it was raining down from my ceiling Smiley

The stuff is really sticky if you use too much and the bees can't fly if you hit them with it.  I use it to clear out the cavities when I do cut outs.
