Rough day for Deepak! :P They should call him OD'eepak...

Thanks for sharing Sunshine. I didn't know that the Himalayan species is the largest and the wave-motion threat display was fascinating. The video mentioned that some wax was taken to feed the animals but I wonder if they use it for any other purposes? Impressive strength shown by a few of the guys to carry Deepak over rocky paths at high altitude!

i wonder if this could be replicated at home, I dont know the first thing about bees. Can you direct them to collect from certain flowers while leaving others alone?  ;D

i want some.

I don't think you can.
But you could plant lots of flowers of your liking around the bee hives and maybe the bees would primarily go for them?

PS: I know nothing of beekeeping either!

It is my understanding that beekeepers either

A. 'Lease' their bees out to farmers and drop them off to forage, such as is the case during apple season; The beekeepers get the honey and some cash, and the farmers get their crops pollinated. In this case there is a 'target' crop(apples) and the bees take the nectar from them because they are so abundant and there are so many of them. I am sure some wildflower nectar makes its way into the honey but its probably minuscule.

B. Let the bees forage from what naturally grows around them. This is called wildflower honey iirc.

C. Keep their bees in a field of a certain type of flower(ie clover)

One could hypothetically plant a ton of monkshood(highly poisonous) and other plants which grow naturally in the area where the hallucinogenic honey is harvested around the bees. I don't think the exact chemistry of the honey could be replicated though. It could be potentially dangerous doing so. I'd advise against it.

On another note, I've always wondered about what the effect on the honey would be if the bees were kept in a field of poppies.

My blue lily/lotus puts the native bees to sleep, and stuffs up the European honey bees. The really buzz loudly and zoom around I big circles when they have been on the lotus flowers.
Unfortunately lots of the native ones drown in the pond so I put little twigs and sticks in there as flotation devices for stoned bees.  :P
Has a very visible effect over them, but poppies don't seem to. Even the good Tassie ones.
Not that I have noticed?

Wouldn't it be cool to have a giant pond filled with blue lotus and a floating dock in the middle to keep a bee hive on. Every so often you could canoe out there and collect your lotus honey. Sounds so much better than clover honey.

Very interesting, thank you. This appears to be a related wikipedia article:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grayanotoxin

I also attach a medical article that wikipedia refers to.

I was curious if you could provide any tips on growing blue lotus? I made a post yesterday, and now I'm scouring the forum for old threads that mention blue lotus. I have had poor success germinating seeds.
