Ran a service call today. The house was all the way down a cul-de-sac and no access to the unit except through the house. This guy had six beehives just five feet away from the condensing unit. I told the guy I was allergic and he says that they won't bother me. So, I go to my truck, get my epi-pen, and decide to grow a pair and do the call. Yeah, there's nothing like having a cloud of curious honey bees buzzing around you to check you out while you work on a condenser. And they land on you too. I hate bees. Last time I got stung it was fun hanging out in the hospital half the day. Thankfully it was just a blown run capacitor, so I was out of there rather quickly.
I wish I had pics, but the homeowner stood there with me the whole time, and I was afraid a unplanned camera flash might send them into a frenzy.
