Even Experienced Bee Keepers Get Stung!
There is a high level of trust between bee keeper and hive to create harmonious living conditions. Education and research goes a long way toward nurturing this unique partnership.
For overall safety and the success of the hive:
- Dress appropriately when near hive. Use proper equipment plus wear protective clothing designed to cover all body parts. Check for holes or flaws often.
- Place the hive in a low traffic area. Bee's prefer to remain distant and are not exactly social creatures. They have a strong work ethic, goal oriented and focused.
- Avoid swatting at bee's to avoid aggression. A hive will take the sudden movements as a threat and create a swarm. Stinging will occur in large numbers.
Bee keeping is similar to real estate in these ways:
- Achieving goals are most important to all involved. When everyone is on board and cooperates, working toward the same end result, everyone benefits greatly.
- Staying focused during a transaction, notably when submitting offers and negotiating is a must, otherwise clients can get pretty worked up. It serves no one well.
- 'Tis better to be graceful and calm through adversity than to feel the sting, especially when a client no longer conducts business with you, due to an out-of-control situation.
Rejection can hurt worse than a bee's barb injected into tender skin. We all know the saying, "Once bitten, twice shy." and I'd rather, "Float like a butterfly, than sting like a bee." Or get stung.
Happy sales all!
