WORLD OF WONDERS: Sixty Thousand Bees Cover Man without a Stink

By Hon. Dr. Enefiok Edem

A 24-year-old, known as Nature M.S., who is an Indian native regards the bees as his ‘best friends’ and says they do not regard him as a threat. Nature has been keeping bees on his face since he was seven years old, impressing his childhood friends with the trick in Kerala.

He also holds the Guinness World Record for the longest time with his head fully covered with bees, at an astonishing four hours, ten minutes and five seconds. Indian beekeeper Nature M.S. (pictured below) lets 60,000 bees cover his face at a time and says the insects do not regard him as a threat in any way.

Even experienced beekeepers can suffer dangerous allergic reactions, but the risk of stings on his lips or eyelids does not worry Nature, who says he is to blame for any stings rather than the bees.

He said he was first introduced to the buzzing creatures by his father Sajayakumar who is himself an award-winning beekeeper and a honey maker. Nature, who has a brother with the bee-themed name of Nectar, said his first experience of being covered by bees was when he put a Queen in his hand. He said, ‘Soon a swarm of buzzing insects crowded around as they covered my arm within 15 minutes.

Nature said he has been stung by the bees, but it is his fault when it happens and not theirs.
He said: “Without any fault of mine a single bee would never sting me at all”. His affection towards the bees has led him to pursue academic studies in apiculture and he is currently studying for a Masters Degree at a college in Bangalore, India. He also dreams of pursuing a Doctorate Degree in this field to protect the bees and learn more about them and bee rearing.

Nature said: ‘Honey is the favourite and the sweetest thing in the world for all humans and everyone loves to have honey. “Bees are my best friends and I wish others too can love my friends as I do”. I and my dear father started campaigning about bees’ protection and the importance of beekeeping.

‘People are often scared of bees because they sting. “Honeybees are the key insects in our society; it is our duty to protect them. Without honeybees, the earth could not sustain us all”.
