I went into a hive the other day to get a frame of eggs for a trap out I have going.
I was going to be quick about it so didn't use any smoke.
The first frame didn't have any eggs sooooo I replaced it and got another frame.
Those gals come unglued and had me covered from the waist down.
I put the empty frame in and replaced the super and inner cover and top.
I took that frame of eggs that still had some bees on it to my van.
When I got to the van I got a bee brush to brush the bees off my legs and such for they were stinging me thru my bib overalls.
The brush made them madder'n a wet banty hen on a rainy Sunday.
I put every thing in the van, frame of eggs in a nuc box and headed down the highway with all my gear still on.
I had to stop by the bank to deposit a check on the way and got out with the veil and stuff still on.
The Police pulled up want'n to know what I was doing.
I said trying to get some relief, I got into a mean hive of bees.
I showed them all the stingers in my pants legs then they said is that bees flying out of your van?
I said why sure they're confused right now though.
They said be careful and left quick.
I got stung around 100 times thru my pants legs.
Next day I went back to the same hive and they were calm as can be.
Guess I just worked them at a bad time.
Gals in the bank ask if I was alright, I said NO, if I was alright I wouldn't be mess'n with bees.
They look'd at me and laughed.
