Will the bees try to sting me if I spray their hive with a hose?
I have a garden hose next to my hives. When it gets really hot in the summer, would it be a good idea to spray the back of their hive with the hose to help them cool off? I would use the shower setting for a gentler spray. Would this bother the bees and have them come after me? They've been pretty docile so far.
