You yelled it as a child, and perhaps still do as an adult “It’s a bee!”
Let’s face it, the possibility of being stung is not something you want to think about, but the truth is the honey bee isn’t the one to worry about. For the most part they are docile, and rarely sting, but wasps on the other hand, well they are a little feisty.
So try and stay calm next time you see our fuzzy friends gathering pollen and nectar, but please feel free to yell out, “It’s a wasp!”- because let’s face it they are usually in a bad mood and can’t necessarily be trusted. And as always, only work with bee hives if you are trained. Visiting Philadelphia Honey Fest is a great way to meet people who can assist you in learning all about beekeeping!
