History has demonstrated that we humans used to be pretty superstitious some time ago. I think it safe to say that we are less superstitious now than we were say a couple of hundred years ago.

It has been the custom amongst beekeepers to keep the bees informed. It’s simply called “Telling The Bees”.

History has demonstrated that we humans used to be pretty superstitious some time ago. I think it safe to say that we are less superstitious now than we were say a couple of hundred years ago.

But some superstitions have lasted the test of time. Did you know there is bee lore? A bit like folk lore, but directly concerning bees.

It has been the custom amongst beekeepers to keep the bees informed. It’s simply called “Telling The Bees”.

A very good friend of mine sent me this article which I am delighted to be able to share with you. Try the link below.

If you have any other examples of bee lore (or peculiar folk lore) please feel free to respond to this post.
