Been helping my hubby with bees for over a year. This spring, March 18th I got my own hive, I've helped with a cut out and helped capture a swarm all without getting stung. So just not enough experience I guess....
In the last 24 hours I've been stung on the eye lid and collapsed a comb trying to shake some nurse bees into my nuc split.
So now I've got some experience on my side how many mistakes do I have to make before the association sends me my bee card
