There is no fighting these nasty little fuckers, only RUNNING!

I lost (ditched) a brand new shovel today, and my big water bottle.

I'm in a new place, don't really know the lay of the land yet, was on ((off)bushwhacking) a logging trail a couple miles from a road..

Climbed up on a huge fallen log to get a better vantage point, and when I was nearly to the end, I noticed a dozen or more bees... Then, a ZZZZZZZ!!!! and a swarm.

I pitched what was in my hands, JUMPED, RAN, FELL, GOT UP and did the craziest and fastest run through brush EVER.

After 5 solid minutes of running, I stopped and tried to catch my breath and was physically shaking. As I panted and frantically looked about, I saw and heard some, STILL AFTER ME!

I'm a special kind of stupid.
Solo treks
Bee allergy (NO EPIPEN)

What a shitty time trying to get away and back to a road.

I'll take bears over bees; any day of the week.
Bees cannot intimidated, and you can't just shoot em' (at least not all of em').

Getting an EPIPEN...
Yeah those evil monsters sting you just because you are breathing the same air as them

Lately I carry a can of hornet spray in the field. It has a good range and can be used for a variety of unwelcome pests. Luckily I haven't had to use it against a swarm while digging but would only be effective with first shot probably. ..I usually encounter the bees while mowing the lawn. Then its security camera review to see the old man run.;) (Please, don't even ask.:))

Sorry to hear it. ..Apply more spray going in and when you go home make like a sarge and check those privates. A stronger soap/shampoo might be helpful too. Revisit all the tricks you learned in basic training and put one of Mailman's "No riders" signs on your hat. ;) ..Not a tick problem here "so far this season." Amen
