i had the same problem when burning some honey for brochet mead a couple months ago. had to wear voile over my face in order to contiune...bees by the thousands!!! had 30+ dive into the smokey boiling mass.

didn't even think about the sugar water until it was all over. sugar water is what bee keepers use to supplement the bee's during winter.....

I was at a BBQ once and they put out disposable plants of ketchup around the perimeter to draw the flies to instead of our food. It seemed to work pretty well. I would think something similar would work for bees?

Feed the bees and they will go to sleep. Really I am not joking here. Put some honey out on a board just kind of make swirls so it has lost of surface area and the bees will come. They will eat and then they will go sleep it off. Sugar coma? Have had to do this a time or two when a rouge swarm happened by my house.

Apis mellifera might just be more misunderstood than saccharomyces cerevisiae. Give them both the respect they are due and they will treat you very well.

Either brew after sunset or let them sacrifice themselve...might acutally add something to the flavor.....might just be the "Bees Knees!"
