Bees and Beehives – pt 1

A chance bit of enlightenment triggered by the thought of an imminent invasion of killer-hornets due to hit the UK soon:

I think the trick to deal with buzzy insects generally may be to wear an all over thermally cooled body suit/wetsuit/hazmat suit or of course beekeeping kit.

The insect is after all only responding to its primal urge to meet up with another organism that’s warm and moist, so if you really wish to take responsibilty for the interaction, you should take precautionery measures to avoid any confusion.

An alternative solution may be to return to the seas from whence you came and just meet up for holidays together.

    I love bees. As an entomologist I know how important they are. They are really under threat at the moment! We do need to give them a helping hand.
    Nick Harper keeps bees!
    I think we all should.
    I like the look of that suit. I think I’ll buy one!
    Best wishes
