The beekeeper needs to look out for his sweet honey bee. He doesn't want to get stung while celebrating Halloween in Huntington Beach's Main Street Trick or Treat Celebration.

Bees will not generally sting if unprovoked. When close to a beehive avoid flapping your arms and moving rapidly, if the bees are provoked, walk away through undergrowth or trees if possible. If stung remove the sting quickly as the sting still pumps venom for some time after the bee has left.  Bees in a swarm are universally in a good mood. They cannot easily sting as they have gorged themselves with honey and cannot get their bodies into the best position to sting. If the swarm is not causing a nuisance then leave it, gradually the bees will cluster in a bush or tree and remain there for up to 3 days. During that time scouts will be sent out to look for a new home.

The Beekeepers Equipment: Bee suit and veil, suitable boots, bee gloves, smoker hive tool, Queen marking cage and pen, a feeder to feed your bee?s sugar syrup,  porter bee escape (a one way valve for bees)

California's favorite Main Street usually closes around 4 p.m. on October 31 to make way for the annual Halloween Celebration. Downtown merchants hand out candy to trick or treat youth from 6 to 8:30 p.m. when the street is designated a children's fun zone. Moon bounces, pony rides, petting zoo, balloons and a costume contest all make this a night to remember. And it's totally free.
