I was stung by a Bee last night while picking peaches.
The bite was under the middle of my foot. I guess it was going to happen and if I'd listen to my gut feeling I'd of known it...
MAJOR CLUES: My dear husband said, "You should be wearing your boots". I was wearing thongs, (flip flops for those living north: NO, I don't wear a g-string in the orchard if that's the visual you got; sorry about that - *shudders*.
Thousands of of bees in our orchard. Great! We have a healthy orchard!
I saw the bees and continued to pull down the bird netting and of course the bees were falling which I found out - OUCH! Thanks to my dear husband for picking out the sting...really thanks.
Moral of this experience:
1. Listen to your gut feeling.
2. Wear boots or closed shoes in the orchard (duh).
4. If you see lots of bees on your orchard fruit - leave them. Come back later or earlier as the case may be.
5. And, again, listen to your GUT FEELING!
One day I might take my own advice...
