We had an event outside for marketing. We had tables set up outside in the garden with fruit displays and assorted appetizers. As soon as the guests started to arrive tons of bees started to swarm the table and food. The more we tried to keep the bees away it seemed like the more they came at us. We had to rush everything inside the building to keep the food and everyone clear of the bees.
