    Default Bee stash?

    So, weird question... Does anyone know how to safely make a bee beard? Do you smoke the bees? Do you put honey on the spot you want them?
    Thanks!

    Don't forget to shave all facial hair. Those I have talked to that have done it say if you don't they will pull at it and get stuck then sting. And that would not be good with 3# of bees on your face.

    use ear plugs too. I think you need some pheremone and you want really young nurse bees.

    Lol... Thanks. Was thinking it could be a great fundraising stunt for Movember. If I am ever brave enough to try it I will post a pic.

    Yeah, mine don't like my smell anymore since potassium pills were added to to my medication arsenal. So I don't thing a queen or pheremones would work for me!!! lol
