If I huddle next to my big dog, will bees or wasps sting us or leave?


That's hard to say. If the dog is agitated or has a strong doggy scent, they may be put off and feel threatened. Of course, if you smell like shampoo or deodorant or any floral scent, they may still be interested in you regardless of the dog. Think neutral scent whenever you have to be out near bees and light, and no bright colors. Bees are also wary of dark colors like dark brown and black as they remind them of their natural predators, bears. Use common sense and enjoy the outdoors!
