Bees buzzing in hair


#1

Does anyone know about what to do when bees get caught in hair? From my experience the bees seem to go crazy in the hair, even if it’s just a little bit of arm hair. It feels like they are getting angry but I don’t think they are. Normally if they get out of their own accord or are gently helped out, they fly off and don’t look back.

Is this a technique that bees use for checking us out? i.e. deliberately threaten as they burrow into the hair to try to trigger a response and if they don’t get one, assume you aren’t a threat.

I find I have to suppress an impulsive response to react to the buzzing.

Just ignore them and let them get them selves untangled - don’t react by trying to remove them.

Pulling hair is one of their defense mechanisms. They don’t usually accidentally get caught, they caught your hair on purpose and are pulling it. A comb in your pocket is helpful. I think they are angry, but they are not trying to sting, they are trying to pull your hair.
