Standing amidst a swarm of bees

-posted by Jayne

We thought you might like to see and hear what it feels like to stand in a swarm of honeybees.  At the end, Maizy says "Daddy might go right there and 'shoo-fly' that bee."  

And that's exactly what he did... that is... he put them in a new box which they claimed as their new home.   This makes 38 swarms this year!


  1. So amazing...your little daughter asking if they bees will sting you is cute......I was thinking the exact same thing. ♥ You must be pretty confident they won't sting, since she wasn't covered!

  2. I was pretty confident! When bees swarm they are very docile, because they have no home or honey to protect. :) I always make sure to tell the kids "probably" because I don't want to make promises I can't keep!
