A Beekeeper Transports A Colony Of Bees Holding The Queen In His Hand.

In the Dominican Republic, a cameraman shot a video that caught the attention and curiosity of Internet users: a man walks quietly down the street with thousands of bees on his arm. He seems perfectly at ease, not at all frightened, and the cameraman – intrigued – asks him a few questions. Internet users who saw the video wondered how it was possible that the man did not get bitten.

The cameraman asks how it is possible that he is not stung by bees and the man, a beekeeper, simply replies ” they know the owner “. The cameraman then asks if the bees produce honey on his arm and the man replies “no, I’m putting them in a box now”. “And do you have the queen in your hand? Because the bees are where the queen is,” the cameraman asks again and the beekeeper replies ” yes, I have it in my hand .”

Netizens were very confused by the image and wondered why the man was moving the bees this way. Other netizens were quick to answer the question: ” Bees swarm when there is a new queen and part of the previous colony breaks off to start a new hive. At this point, the swarm of bees looks absolutely scary, but he is the most docile of them all as he is simply looking for a new home while protecting the queen. As the queen, in this case, does not feel threatened or hurt, the rest of the swarm simply follows”.

It takes courage or knowledge of these fascinating insects to transport bees this way!
