Never mind, I keep forgetting about the internet.

It sounds logical enough, I was expecting to see "Trump makes urine smell bad" or "because of Covid"

If you're smelling with your piss then you need to see a nose doctor right away.

Where the hell are all the bees coming from? I was under the impression that farmers like me were endangering them with the dust from treated corn seed but they are everywhere and in the last few weeks, the little bastards are aggressive as hell and stinging everybody.

Is it a local problem? A lot of Cicada and Cicada Killers this year but I've never heard of anyone getting stung by a cicada killer wasp even though they look badass.

Wrong impression. Last I heard honey bees are still threatened due to a fungus that's killing them off (not farmer stuff). Lately that's been pretty quiet in the news so maybe they're finally getting a handle on it. Not all "bees" are honey bees. Sounds like you might have either Killer Bees or a crossbreed variant of them (saw that not long ago where killer bees were cross breeding with honey bees). Honey bees generally are not aggressive unless you threaten the hive or the queen.

It's not just one kind of bee, multiple species are in abundance

I can remember doing hay and there was a colony of ground wasps out there. They got plenty pissed when I mowed over their nest entrance. I was lookin behind the tractor to check the mower bar and saw the black cloud forming behind me. Switch off. Feet flew. Hay got mowed the next day.

I've been there, had to bail off the tractor, didn't even shut it off. It took several hours before I could get close enough to the tractor because it was covered, maybe it was the noise and vibration.

I brought it up because the number of bees and the aggressiveness of the bees is unique and unlike anything I've seen. One theory is that with the pandemic, there are less bees being hit by traffic, another explanation is that this is the first season in over a decade where we didn't use organophosphates to have to kill soybean aphids as their numbers were down this year. That's hundreds of thousands of acres of bugs that weren't killed.
