Re: Treatment Free Commercial Beekeepers?
Same here, I take shots of my bees & they take no interest in the camera at all.
I think what's going on with the bees in the video, is you have someone dressed head to toe in white, pointing and waving a black object at the bees. That of course will be the focus, same as if they'd waved a black rag, or whatever.
Particularly once the object has been "scented", it's going to be the focus of attention. Just like when angry bees find that little rip in your trousers. Once it's been found and marked, that's where the bees attacking you are going to be focussing.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
