Yes, they attack. When I nurse the hive, I go under wind side that my smell does not drift in the hive.I have been told that bees recognise beekeepers by their smell after a short time?
Is there any truth in this?
Bees live for about six weeks during the season so that would be six inspections?have been told that bees recognise beekeepers by their smell after a short time?
I love onoins and garlic , I have never noticed my bees behaviour being altered by the smell of these things, my wife assists me on occasion , often wearing perfume, again the bees pay her no particular attention .I was told to avoid raw onion and garlic and that upsets them... out your mouth and out of your pores. true or not??
