Practice makes perfect! Watch the University of Minnesota Bee Lab practice donning and doffing bee beards in preparation for the Minnesota State Fair (See Bee Beard Finale: Trouble at the State Fair, and Preparations for the Bee Beard). Gary Reuter, lead UMN Bee Lab apiculture technician, harnesses the bees' instinct to gather in a group around the queen when in a swarm. You will see how the bees build a beard on willing and smiling volunteers. Did anyone get stung? We think not.
