Tuesday the 22nd started for me with three stings to the head as we went back out to the Apiaries to collect the honey that had been separated from the hives. I continue to get stung in situations where I think I’m not posing any threat to the bees, but I think I’m going to have to be a bit more cautious in future. The bees were also bothering Fraser, and as Tim doesn’t work with gloves he gets the most stings, but after twenty years of bee keeping they affect him the least. Tim assures us that when the weather gets warmer the bees temper cools down so hopefully before too long the bees will be happy to have us checking up on them making sure they’re happy, healthy and have plenty of space to move. At the end of the day we ended up with about four tonnes of honey.
