    Yellow Jackets like Pink Socks?

    Having never been sting by a bee or a wasp ever in my life, I have now been stung twice in the past week, despite steering clear of their nest. I just occurred to ne both time I was wearing my favorite hot pink socks! I am pretty sure bees see color in some fashion ... no fair!

    Ouch! That's no fun.

    Apparently you are not steering clear ENOUGH for them, lol. Also, I believe they are attracted to bright colors, so the socks could well play a factor in this.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    It's a small space - they live in a column about 4 feet from my sliding glass doors. It's MY portent - I moved here before they did!
