'King Of Bees' With Swarm Around His Body Claims He's Never Been Stung

While many would swerve a bee in the street, one man is happy to have hundreds clung to his body at all times.

Meet Ndayisaba - the self-proclaimed 'King of Bees' who has amazed people with his ability to walk around with thousands of bees on his body 'without being stung'.

Ndayisaba, who is from the African country of Rwanda, has been taking care of bees for over 30 years and recently shocked social media users after images of him walking around with a hive of bees on his body appeared online.

The man said that aside from the popularity he has gained in and around his community, his unusual skill has helped him earn decent money through selling the honey.

Ndayisaba, who has been taking care of bees since he was a child, explained that to attract the whole hive, he first has to identify and place the queen bee on his body.

Ndayisaba said: "In order to control the bees, I have to look for the queen bee first. Then I put the queen on my body to attract the other bees."

The experienced beekeeper said he gets the queen bee to maintain a static position on his body by tying the insect with string around his waist.

The other bees follow and fiercely protect their queen, flying towards the Rwandese man and forming a shield around him to keep the queen safe.

Ndayisaba coolly added: "I am well known for bee keeping, they never sting me.

"People are not bothered by this. It rather makes them happy, and they want me to teach them. They are not afraid, all they want is to learn in order to start keeping bees themselves."

Someone else who isn't afraid of a few buzzing bees is Suk Mahammad Dalal who handles the bees he keeps without any protective gear shielding his body.

He grabs fistfuls of bees and shoves them down his own vest on to his uncovered stomach.

He claimed that the initial days of honey collecting were quite painful, as the stings hurt and left behind swollen limbs.

But after persisting for the past 15 years, the pain has now disappeared and his limbs have stopped swelling.

Sometimes the stings can cause the honey collector's lips to swell, but he cures with a nice, hot cup of tea.
