This Saturday I was out in ridgecrest with friends they were under a easy up roto tilling and Jack hammering for dry wash material. I was going up a close by hill beeping with my GM 1000 .8:30 am I had a lite cotton dark blue long sleeve shirt wearing Brute deodorant with no headphones on and the detector was screaming at full volume. I was about 250 feet from my Ford pickup when the attack started. With one bee on the back of each ear one on the back of my neck one on my shoulder and 2 circling the front of my face I pulled off my hat and started swatting these killers . To no avail they would not move and relentlessly would not give up . I ran to my truck flailing my hat and even at my truck one was on my nose still had them behind my ears with a few circling me . I got in my truck and prayed none made it in there , I was safe. Looking in my mirror I had a stinger sticking right out the side of my nose . It was pretty scary knowing if there had been twice as many bees and my truck could have been twice or three times farther. I ended up with about 7 stings / welts and 3 were kinda big . The one especially on the front of my neck , and boy it itched . I think the detectors sound set them off then my floral deodorant attracted them with the dark blue shirt .
Bee careful guys because this was no joke .
