Honeybees are amazing creatures, they know if you like them. Fear releases the same hormones as aggression and they can't tell the difference. I helped capture a swarm this summer in shorts and bare feet, wasn't stung once.

This is the swarm we caught


They know.

NO I like it Shadow! We have different insects every year. Last summer, not much bees and huge numbers of bumble bees. The the summer before that dragon flies everywhere. They ate the mosquitoes and I didn't get bit all that summer.
