I was trying to steal some honey last spring from a wild hive like I have done many times before. I have learned to park the truck several hundred yards away. Well when I got to the hive the bees were on me. They got so bad I could no longer see through my hood. At this point I decided this hive was not worth it so I walked away. The bees followed me to the truck. Then for another 45 min walking circles I thought they left. The second I took my hood off I got stung on the neck. After it was all said on done it took an hour for the bees to leave me alone. I never even touched the hive. With out my suit I would have been in the hospital or dead. Like I said I never touched the hive I could have just as easily been hiking with my wife and kid. So be careful. You don't have to mess with them to get into trouble.
