More Bees

I’m back in theatre again - this time to stage manage a production of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

The bees are also back. There were many wandering around and dying on stage in the morning - then I found one on a cloth I was tying up to a flying bar (it didn’t like being found and stung me).

Setting lights was a problem because the things are attracted to them when on

  • my colleague also picked up a sting then.

Later we rigged an insect killer up on a flying bar near the root - it appeared to be picking up a large number of victims.

These are supposed to be Masonry Bees - which apparently are unable to penetrate human skin. However several of us were stung. Hopefully the maintenance guys can do something about them after the weekend.
