🐝 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.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
