I Like Bees


I like bees.  Bees and I get on just fine (well the ones I've met so far - British honeybees, mostly).   Wasps are the meanies.  I've been stung by a wasp, but never by a bee (so far).

Bees seem quite smart to me.  Whenever one gets inside the house, all I usually have to do is open the windows a little bit wider, or open the door to the garden, and wait for a minute.   It will usually fly about the room for a bit, have a good look around, and then casually fly back to the window/door and go away again.  If a wasp tries that, it ends up bashing its head against the glass a million times, and gets itself really angry, before it finally realises the window is open (sometimes I have to find a way to help it understand). 

Also, whenever I'm out doing work in my little garden usually a bee will fly up beside me, buzz in front of me for a while, then buzz down to the plant I'm tending, just to check out what I'm doing, before flying home to tell all its buddies what is happening.  lol.

I love bees too. I have a great affection for them. You are right...they are great communicators. Wasps and other meanies like hornets and yellow jackets I think are wired differently.
