Transforming children’s mind from bee hating to bee loving for Development

We managed to capture the queen bee and removed her wings so to prevent her from flying away. We successfully transferred the colony into a bee hive so the family can continue to harvest honey plus other bee product.

This is what you need to know to prevent bees from stinging you: First, you need to calm them down by smoking. If you are going to be transferring the bees into an hive, then you need to capture the queen and remove her wings so she can not fly. If you don’t remove her wings, you can enclose her in a cage with holes where she can be fed but not able to get out immediately (the worker bee will be able to open a passage for her to get out after some days). Then the rest of the bees will just come to protect the queen. Also, when a bee moves on you, just leave it and don’t kill it. If you kill it then other bees will smell a certain scent and they will begin to sting you. Also, you don’t have to run but just walk gently and don’t wear perfume. Always smoke yourself and try to smoke around.

Do you have a problem with bees? Just drop us a line and we shall be right there. Thank you
