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.
