No rookie beekeeper’s blog would be complete without a sting log, so here it is.
Monday, June 7th, 2010. 2 stings. One on each temple. I deserved them both.
Saturday, June 12th, 2010. 1 sting on the wrist.
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010. 1 sting on the outside edge of my right hand.
Sunday, June 27, 2010. Balta, the dog, got stung on the nose. Poor puppy.
Some evening in July or August 2010. One sting while I was taking laundry off the clothes line. I’m not really sure why, but the bees were awfully cranky that night and started head-butting as soon as I entered the yard. This is the kind of thing I spend a lot of time telling people that bees usually just don’t do.
Thursday, August 18th, 2011. 1 on Back of left forearm. Hardly worth mentioning. I wasn’t even sure it happened.
