HANDLING BEES

by Chris Slade
(Dorset)

Because of their compound eyes, bees are very much more sentitive to movement than we are, although they may not be able to focus as well. Because of this, when opening and manipulating a hive, move your hands at less than half the speed you would normally do to avoid attracting guards alerted by the movement.
