WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING
Because they are swarming! ^_^
Hello friends, I’m going to tell you some cool stuff about bees and why you shouldn’t be afraid of them!
See, there is a lot of misplaced fear over our fuzzy pollinating buddies. Many folks think they are mean and dangerous, but bees are very good little friends. The little, kind bee should not be mistaken for their evil look a likes, such as Hornets Yellow Jackets and Wasps, which are evil and should be hated like the beasts they are. Bees are docile by nature, and are not a threat to anyone who’s not allergic to them.
These bees are Swarming, which despite it’s scary sounding name, is not a dangerous time to be around bees. This time is the safest time to be around bees because they couldn’t give a hoot about you. These bees are gathering themselves together in order to go as a whole colony to find a new home. The gif is showing how bees don’t mind the outside world at this point in a swarm. The bees probably feel like a tickle on his hand. ^-^
Here’s some cool facts about bees!
-Bees are the BEST pollinators in the world! better than butterflies, or humming birds.
-Bees in a colony are all females. The males of the species look totes different and are called drones.
-Bees are totally different from Yellow Jackets, Hornets, and Wasps. They are not even close relatives in the insect kingdom!
-“Africanized” Bees are of no threat to anyone north of the New Mexico, and they barely pose a risk there! They are more territorial than some other species of bees, but not as bad as wasps.
-Many crops rely on bees.
-Bees will often die after stinging someone. Bees know this, and thus will do much to avoid stinging you. Hate to say it buddy, but you’re not worth their time.
-Honey, in it’s natural state, is a vitamin rich superfood! It can help with everything from icky feelings, to gross hair.
-Bees are threatened in many places by parasites, people, and misinformation. Do your part to help the bees and plant some flowers.
Thank u friends! ^u^
I used to have a book on the origin of bizarre English words and phrases that have either been warped far from their origins or have fallen out of use in the past century. I gave the book to an English professor of mine as a thank you for a great semester. I can’t give you a specific citation and you should consider this anecdotal, but I thought I would share it anyways.
There was a particular practice in England that involved bees in the Early Modern Period called ‘telling the bees”.
If you owned property it was important to have your own hive. These bees were so important that they were considered a part of your family. Whenever something of significance happened with the family (especially a death) someone had to go out and tell the bees everything that happened. It was believed that if the bees felt left out, they would become depressed and would be less effective at pollinating and producing honey. Sometimes other practices were involved like giving the bees a slice of wedding cake, draping the bees in a black mourning cloth, singing to them, etc.
I just thought I should share that with everyone. Because it’s the little things.
Yes, you shouldn’t be afraid of bees… unless you’re allergic to them, Then just stay the hell away.
