OurBimini top has not been deployed yet this season and has been inside its sleeve for a few months.  Today as I was fiddling with our non-operative anchor light which is on the Bimini top I had the extreme bad luck of disturbing a red wasp nest that had been built inside the Bimini sleeve.  Have never had a wasp sting this bad.  It is on the tip of my middle finger and just now after about three hours the shooting pains are beginning to recede.  It is twice the size of its mate on the other hand.

For some such a sting can be a life- threatening situation.  I am lucky in that it just hurts like he!! and my body is taking it in stride.  If you are a part-timer like us or are away from your place for a while, be sure to keep your wasp killer bazooka handy when unfurling things  like Bimini tops or just about anything that would be a likely nest-building location.  Getting a surprise like mine today is NO fun, believe me.
