Oh yeah!! Stung so many times last year I lost count. Upgraded gear to full face, visor ALWAYS down! Full long sleeve jacket, thick enough to keep them from sting through. & gauntlet style gloves, to save the wrists. Also I now always wear my kevlar over-pants, no more stings to my (fill in the blank), and I can tell you those hurt! Yes it's hot, but I just deal with it, & not just for the hoards of yellow jackets, hornets, honey bees, bumble bees, the list goes on!
Oh Liz, thanks for sending the Bee girl around, I am now a born again bee lover, & vow to respect the existences of our stinger packing comrades... but I'm keeping my Benidryl, just in case.
