Holy fuck I'm still afraid of killer bees. Fuck those bees man.
I worked at a nursery that had a huge colony of honey bees in this barn and sometimes I had to pass through the swarm to get grower pots. The trick was to just let them land on you and not panic. Also when they swarmed in your hair you just waited til you left the barn and they would fly away. It was a skill
I remember when we were warned that the killer bees were going to cross the American boarder from Mexico in 1981 and then all bets for our society were off.
Apparently they represent the majority of feral bees in certain parts of Cali but the appear to grow less defensive with time.
Its too bad, though, cuz we need bees and if they could pollinate our crops and take out half the population it would be like the killing 2 birds thing
