    Mmm, well, not always, in my experience, I have to say. After all, feral bees would not be expected to act calmly in the event of a forest fire - they would pack their picnic baskets and vacate in a hurry! I have known some hives (not mine!) to become very agitated by only modest amounts of smoke, while others do appear to become calmer. Like Winnie the Pooh said...

    I have a young girl that works one of my hives for a school project she is about 100# on a good day, and all she wares is her dadÂ’s white shirt no veil and no gloves. She goes though my TBH frame by frame and takes all the drones off by hand and puts them in a box. She put two frames with no foundation in them and as the hive fills the frames out she cuts out the frames and caps them and looks for mites. No smoke and no stings so far.
