Split Success(Now I Know)
I should start seeing emerging bees sometime around August 4th. I'm hoping that in the third hive I looked at the new bees from theses queens are gentler than the ones that came from the old hive. They were all over me as dug deeper into the hive looking for eggs. I was stung several times in my shoulder but after the first two just winced a little with each attack and kept going.
I was cleaning out a bluebird box today and irritated a wasp nest that was in the top of the box. One of them came out and hit me on the wrist. It hurt for a minute but now several hours later I can barely tell where the sting is other than the little mark it left.
