Reasons why you should always wear a veil when bee keeping.
Last night i changed the syrup feeder over and normally I do this with out a veil or smoke. I must have crushed a bee when I put the feeder back on as I upset them got stung on the ear!!
I now can do a good impression of Prince Charles, well on half of me can.
I got away lightly stung on the ear.  If I was stung on the nose or on the soft bits around the chin it would have hurt allot and I would look more ugly than I normally do.

Normal Ear


Stung Ear


Full Frontal
Stuart


Dont worry I am just paranoid duckie.

If I get the wrong end of the stick its because I have speed read. Honest.

Blar blar blar blar snorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre.

No not painful though I do feel and look like I am wearing a false ear.

Don't know about reasons why you should always wear a veil when bee keeping, but you've given us proof as to why you should wear a veil full stop!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
