You hear stories about color affecting bees. My take is, the bees don't care. Now, I'm not saying it is insignificant, no, but generally speaking, from my experiences around bees, unagitated bees simply can care less that you are there with a black shirt or a yellow one, whatever.
I wear dark blue and black shirts around them all the time and they pay no mind. So what I'm saying is, I do not for one second believe that "color" of any type is a trigger for bees to become aggressive and start stinging you or your black pet minature pony.
Once agitated, they may or may not hone in on a particular color, I don't know, but I believe the whole don't wear black around bees is far fetched.
My jacket and veil however are white. Anyone work their bees in colors other than white?
