From 5 to 2 and hopefully a better year
All,
I have seen various pictures like the one I have attached and have wondered how this effect is achieved.

I heard that the person daubs themselves in a pheromone and puts the queen in a cage in their pocket...but how do they avoid getting stung or bees that wander into noses, ears, eyes, etc?

All the best,
Sam.

L.E. Snelgrove's "Swarming, it's control and prevention" book has his nibs pictured on the cover with a full beard of bees. It was achieved by tucking the caged queen under his chin:)
