12 Jun I hate bees
“I hate bees” a fellow blogger said to me when I asked whether she would come with us to visit Miele Praconi, one of the biggest honey producers in Emilia-Romagna. I was stunned that someone could feel such a negative emotion towards an insect that is so beneficial to humans but I wasn’t really surprised. Bees get a bad rap. They sometimes swarm and are often mistaken for wasps. Unlike wasps, bees are gentle and sting only when they feel threatened, after one sting they die so they pick their battles wisely.
