We have many honey bees on our farm as they love lavender. These bees are busy collecting nectar to make honey and are not aggressive. Honey bees do not want to sting because if they do sting someone then they die.
However sometimes a bee may become entangled in clothes or hair and become panicked. In this case it may sting in self defence. We advise people that are concerned about the potential to be stung not to wear floaty clothes in which a bee may become entangled and if possible to also avoid exposed bare skin when walking through the lavender. Some people are allergic to bee stings and may have a reaction. In this rare case it will be necessary to phone for an ambulance..
If you are concerned or think you may be allergic to bee stings than you should seek medical advice before visiting our farm so that you can independently assess the risk.
