My Dad used to keep bees. He loved them. And he always said the if you are good natured, the bees wouldn't sting. And also that they are worse on a damp, cool day. One time he and my mom had an argument. Dad wouldn't argue much, he would just walk out. Anyway, he decided to rob the bees. He got stung so bad, that he almost had to go to the hospital. Usally, he could go out in his shirt sleeves. the bees would cover his arms, he just brushed them off. He might get 2 or 3 stings. Nothing to worry about. Beware, if you have an argument with some one, don't go rob the bees.
