    Here’s a fascinating one!

    While watching the following videos with the screen tilted back a bit do this – quick short stop/starts on the Play button. Do you see the “O waves” or “Sky Waves”? The camera catches them. Video is “Does Orgonite Eliminate Chemtrails”

    With Video called “Effects of Orgonite in the Environment:” stop at 0:57, 0:58,…… to 1:09 mins. And have the screen tilted kind of dark. See the “O Waves”? soisnessdotorg

    It’s “principles”. Principles are the fundamentals of something.
    Principals are the people who run the schools and who no student ever wants to get sent to.

    the smoke makes them think that their home is about to burn, so they are drinking honey in anticipation of flying for 3 or 4 days looking for a new home (swarming)

    The smoke conceals the pheremones they release when the hive is “invaded.” Basically it jams the communication.

    ha ha ha ha love the different thoeries! The smoke actually camouflages the alarm pheromone that the guard bees send out when the colony is attacked. They then stay calm – easy!

    What are you on about? That is very wrong. ‘thpt’ is exactly right. Their natural instinct tells them that there is a fire when they sense smoke, so in case the ‘fire’ comes near and they need to leave the hive or risk getting wiped out from it, they gorge themselves on honey so they have enough energy to survive without a home while looking for a new one. This makes them docile and also their abdomen bulges at the amount of food consumed which makes it harder for them to bend it to sting you.

    Several different reasons, the smoke has a lot to do with it. Smoke makes them gorge themselves on honey, which is kinda like us after we leave an all you can eat buffet, we move slow, and aren’t very concerned about a lot of things except for resting. Scent color and barometric pressure time of season and time of day have a lot to do with it. Even the temperament of the queen affects how the hive acts.

    Smoke makes the bees think there’s a fire, so they ‘keep their heads down’ and gorge on the honey (to save it from the fire), and the smoke also covers the man’s scent so the bees don’t know it’s an intruder. This is why Beeks (bee keepers) smoke up before suiting up. Also, never wear dark shirts when around hives!

    The smoke causes them to be sexually aroused. When they see the man, they think he is there to mate with them, so they won’t sting him. Now, if a woman comes near the man, they will sting her.

    Too bad bees are in the near of extinct.

    The smoke burns specifically from pine wood, when bees sense this, they let intruders into the hive, having a sense of salvation from a fire.
