As a human, I would be seriously unimpressed with someone who went ahead and put me into what I felt was danger just cuz he really, really, really wanted to. I would probably be swayed if that person took the time to teach me about bees, let me do some research on my own, talk to a doctor or 2 about anaphylaxis and Epi-Pens, etc.
I don't think whether the bees are dangerous or not are the issue. Obviously we on this forum are very biased and feel bees are about the coolest things on earth. If someone is very afraid, and her son is deathly (?) allergic, bees are very, very scary to her. And that should count.
