(Quote by - Nikola Tesla)

Therefore doth heaven divide The state of man in divers functions, Setting endeavor in continual motion; To which is fixed as an aim or butt Obedience; for so work the honeybees, Creatures that by a rule in nature teach The act of order to a peopled kingdom. They have a king, and officers of sorts, Where some like magistrates correct at home, Others like merchants venture trade abroad, Others like soldiers armed in their stings Make boot upon the summer's velvet buds, Which pillage they with merry march bring home To the tent-royal of their emperor, Who, busied in his majesties, surveys The singing masons building roofs of gold, The civil citizens kneading up the honey, The poor mechanic porters crowding in Their heavy burdens at his narrow gate, The sad-eyed justice with his surly hum Delivering o'er to executors pale The lazy yawning drone. (Quote by - William Shakespeare)

Avoid areas where bees are foraging and avoid disturbing them, if possible. Learn to look and listen for bee activity wherever you happen to be.

Managing them requires changes in management practices. There are more costs in everything you do, more labor and expense used to control mites. It makes everything more expensive.

When bees die off for any reason it's an expense, whether they are used for making a honey or for renting hives to farmers. (Quote by - Steve Hunter)

That buzzing-noise means something. If there's a buzzing noise, somebody's making a buzzing-noise, and the only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you're a bee. ..And the only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey...And the only reason for making honey is so as I can eat it. So he began to climb the tree. (Quote by - Winnie the Pooh)

What makes them probably a little bit more dangerous is that they release an alarm pheromone after they sting, which signals other bees to come and attack. Where European bees might come in and sting one time, Africanized bees could probably sting 10 times. (Quote by - Ed Skvarch)

All finite things reveal infinitude: The mountain with its singular bright shade Like the blue shine on freshly frozen snow, The after-light upon ice-burdened pines; Odor of basswood upon a mountain slope, A scene beloved of bees; Silence of wate. (Quote by - Theodore Roethke)

Bees work for man, and yet they never bruise Their Master's flower, but leave it having done, As fair as ever and as fit to use; So both the flower doth stay and honey run. (Quote by - George Herbert)
