Bees and Smoke



In the above video I talk about bees, and smoke, and how the bees feel about smoking, and a bee keeps trying to crawl into my right ear, thinks she's a real comedian she does.


Smoking the bees to calm them down is better than just suiting up and letting them try to sting you, since the alarm pheromone, if released, attracts pests like hive beetles to the hives. The alarm pheromone, incidentally, smells like bananas, causing me to instantly notice and become alarmed when a shipmate was eatig a banana muffin behind me in the dark on Sunday aboard the topsail ketch Hawaiian Cheiftain.
