When bees are provoked or disturbed, the whole swarm attack
and pursue whatever annoys them, with great courage and fury,
and sometimes are a most formidable enemy. They were so
troublesome in some districts of Crete, that, according to
Pliny, the inhabitants were actually compelled to forsake
their homes. (926c)ian reports, that some places in Scythia were
formerly inaccessible on account of the numerous swarms of
bees with which they were infested. Mr. Park relates, that
some of his associates imprudently attempted to rob a numerous
hive which they found in their way. The exasperated little
animals rushed out to defend their property, and attacked them
with so much fury, that they quickly compelled the whole
company of men, horses, and asses, to scamper off in all
directions, The horses were never recovered, and a number of
the asses were so severely stung, that they died the next day.
