Summer is the time of the year not only for doing many exciting things like playing outside, gardening and enjoying backyard BBQs, but is also the season for wasps, bees and other stinging insects. Getting stung by a bee is both painful and a deadly situation for those who are allergic. Here are a few things you shouldn’t do to protect yourself from bees.

Don’t Use Perfumes:

Bees that are looking for nectar can pursue strong smells and scents even from a distance.  If you wear colognes or perfumes, they could get a whiff of you and come behind you.

Don’t Wear Bright Coloured Dress:

We all know that bees love flowers and are attracted to bright colours. So, wearing bright-coloured dress with floral prints will garner their attention and they could land on you.

Don’t Eat Sugary Foods Outside:

Bees and wasps are attracted to sugary, sweetened foods. When you eat sugared foods or take a cup of coffee in your backyard, make sure if a bee has not flown on your goodies.

Don’t Walk Barefoot:

Do you know that wasps could make their nests on the ground? Yes, they do. If you happen to trample one, it might sting you to protect itself. Of course, you should also check before you sit down as it could be very unpleasant to be seated on a bee.

Don’t Wear Loose-Fitting Clothes:

If a bee gets caught in your loose-fitting clothing, it could sting you several times when attempting to get out. Hence, it is worthwhile to make sure that you are wearing perfectly-fitting clothes when you spend time in your backyard.

Don’t Make A Move:

When bees or wasps come closer to you, staying calm and still will prevent you from getting stung by these insects. They will leave you once they recognise that you are humans but not the flowers.
