More Bees

Standard

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.
