Do you remember that poutine-eating championship? And here is another Canadian competition and it's even crazier, because it's Bee Beard Competition in Ontario! Beebearding began in 1700s when beekeepers discovered they could create a beard of bees by tying the queen to a thread around the neck.
Beekeeper Melanie Kempers explained the beard process.

Every colony has one queen. They all recognize her by smell. We put her in a small plastic cage and tie it around the neck, and we take the bees from her colony. We put them onto newspaper, and then pour them into a pair of hands just below the queen. They smell her and walk up towards her. Once they smell her, they huddle around her, that’s what creates the certain look.
