๐Ÿ things I learned today:

1. Bees can't tell humans in dark clothing from bears. Wear light clothing when working with bees.

2. It's okay to flick or bump a bee, but don't push it.

3. Bees like sugar water, but don't put it on the stove to speed dissolving: if any of the sugar caramelizes, it becomes toxic to bees.

@HedgeMage Bees don't have colonies.

They are properly referred to as autonomous collectives.
