Good Luck! My only stings this year were on my feet and came from having loose flip-flops during the clover flow
Had only ONE sting last year. Either my bees are less aggressive than most or I'm doing something right
I know that just the 'acceptance of receiving stings' reduced the amount I get, ironically with stings being ONE of the things that intrigued me about keeping bees as they are alleged to help with arthritic conditions.
The longer I have bees, the more I work with them, the less I am stung
Not sure if that's normal or not, but I do know a few Beeks who receive more than 100 stings per season and they have no more or even less colonies than I do.
