I'm a tile setter, so I do a lot of gripping and lifting and pushing with my hands on a daily basis.   I used to have pain and stiffness in my  hands all the time.  Since I started keeping bees that's all gone away.   I never wear gloves and the dozen or so incidental stings I get each year on my hands seem to do the trick.  By this time of year, not working the bees for 4 months, the pain starts to creep back in.
My advice: worth price charged :)

Pistol- that is great news! Are your bees near where you live? If so, I can teach you how to get your bees 'safely' from the hive during the winter, and keep them in a jar for about a week. This way, you can self sting as needed. It takes a jar, some netting, and long handled tweezers.

Around here it's really not a good idea to mess with the cluster during the winter.  The temperatures are colder than your deep freezer for about 3 months straight, with the entrance reduced  and everything else propolised shut for the duration.    That, and I'm a bit of a chicken about stings.   I don't mind at all if I get stung, but if I see it coming (like self stinging) I get anxious about it.
