Perth's suburbs tend to be "ever blooming" and I have found mine have in the past managed fine even with just a brood chamber over winter.

Not so quiet Burnsy. That day I took 15 stings at the last count but considering what we were doing and how we had to shake them up so much because the hives were pretty glued together that was not too bad. They were bouncing off our veils pretty hard but don't tend to worry about hands. I think they are programmed to go for the breath more than the hands. People generally fear stings more when they have not been stung too much. After a while you realise they are not too bad if you get the sting out and smoke it quickly so you don't get another one in the same place.

The stings don't worry me but I have developed a pretty bad reaction of late. It is getting to the point of bordering on anaphalaxis so I don't take and chances anymore. One sting can make my scalp and the soles of my feet itchy and I get all hot like hives.

Sounds like time to be careful for you Burnsy.
