  1. Brilliant information! I was always so scared of bees and thought that their only use was to make honey. I appreciate this new knowledge, next time I see one I’ll look at them with a totally different eye 🙂

    • thank you 🙂
      i have grown quite fond of them this year, planted specifically for them and has been very enlightening. they are not aggressive and you can work right along side of them in garden.

      • It is just when they buzz around you that you feel threatened and gesticulate nervously which probably make them nervous in return and that’s when they can sting.
        Passivity is surely the answer 🙂

    • my general recommendation if you would like to attract bumblebees, plant thistle somewhere. it is also great deterrent for cats to use garden as litter box.

  2. LOVE THESE LITTLE HUMBLE LIVING THINGS…They are the gifts of gods to ones place…..Let me say this…I have been out on the paddock on the farm and garden/s a lot…( More than many would anyway )… Never have been beaten by a humble bee in the garden or other-ways…It is said that bees smell, feel and know the owner of the place via theirs smell senses….It is also said, that the bees can sense the vibes ( bad or good ) of an human, when around…They know it if they are in danger or safe with you or not …That is why some get beaten by the bees, and some don’t.
    With snakes is almost just the same…. 😉
