My brother found out the hard way last summer that he is now allergic to bees. Got stung while doing some yard work, almost died. Very, very scary.

Less than 5 minutes and his breathing almost stoppped.

If you do spay the bees you better not use the honey afterwards. I have a friend that poisoned himself that way.
