Bees, like most stinging insects, only attack as a last measure.

Remember; bees lose their life to sting you just once.

Did you know you can hold most spiders in your hand?

Just don't ever try to "restrict" them from moving...or they will insist that you don't quite harshly.

Good news about bee keepers and honey collectors; most bee keepers are going to more "neutral-smoke" for "smoking" hives...

"Smoke masks alarm pheromones which include various chemicals, e.g., isopentyl acetate that are released by guard bees or bees that are injured during a beekeeper's inspection. The smoke creates an opportunity for the beekeeper to open the beehive and work while the colony's defensive response is interrupted."

They still can be "stung" if they trap or compress an individual; so careful bee-keepers avoid doing this.

Yes, that's me, too!! They are so sweet and peaceful, and seem to enjoy the conversation . . . or am I just losing it?

Just don't want to startle them.

Empathic space with pollinators and proverbial canaries in the coal mines are saving not losing lives

I leave a plate of food and drinks out for them, used to drive the dog crazy.
