did you know that if you ignore bees and wasps they won’t sting you???
if a bee (or wasp) comes buzzing around you, you can slowly walk away from the area or wait until they realize you are not a plant and fly away on their own
once you start screaming and flapping around trying to swat it away, they will think you’re attacking them and are much more likely to sting you
even gently shooing them with your hand will usually send the message “oh this is just another animal. nothing to pollinate here” and they’ll buzz away
I’ve NEVER been stung by a bee or wasp in my life bc I’ve always reacted calmly around them. bees and yes, wasps are both fairly chill creatures and are only interested in pollination and protecting their nests
