Up until last night I've never had any problems feeding bees at night, so have never worn a veil.

Standing in a field in the pitch black pouring syrup into the feeder I was stung three times in the face.

I'll be wearing my veil from now on.

Beware!

Bees have a strange habit to protect their hive. Then they have a sting. What for?
