kind of different.

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.....

no doubt.  AZ has a lot i guess. my son worries about them because the bees are attracted into his yard for the citrus bloom.

Every time I read one of these stories I wonder if there isn't some sort of scent bomb that could be developed that would confuse the bees and make them less aggressive.

I mean hikers carry emergency gear all the time and frequently carry pepper spray for bears or other people why not a 'scent bomb'.

Just thinking out load here, not saying whether it's feasible or practical, but along those lines....I wonder if something like "bee quick" would/could be effective?  In theory, if you were being attacked and poured an entire bottle of bee quick on yourself, would it help, or would it bee ineffective once they're in attack mode?...Hmm? Thoughts?

I live in SW Fl and deal with The Africans on a daily basis.  Some days are OK but every once in awhile I run into a hot hive.  I have a bottle of my own version of bee quick in the truck.  I wear a jacket so I can get stung through my jeans and around my ankles.  I wet my pants and socks down rather thoroughly and most of the bees leave me alone.  A few will come flying in backwards and try to hit me but they don't stay on me very long.  I also mist it on my veil when I have to crawl under a trailer, helps keep them off my face.
