Well, what are you?) Who told you such nonsense? They have faceted vision, they can see and feel you perfectly, just if you do not move, then you do not pose a danger to their swarm, and if you move, they will start attacking you, first one, and then all the others.
This is what I can say due to the fact that I had to contact bees every summer at my uncle's apiary, and because of allergies it is necessary to do it carefully
Bees see you perfectly and how it was mentioned above, they feel by the smell, which is enhanced by the release of adrenaline, and if you freeze in place, then most likely you will calm down and the bees will lose interest in you
While standing close to the hive is dangerous: 20 meters away from him, after a while, the bees will perceive you as a threat to their home. After that, only a tactical retreat will help you, since the old guard who intentionally flies to sting you will be killed either in battle with you, or you will flee (which is unlikely because their speed is about 30 km / h, and he will also accelerate, therefore what attacks)
But here's a good advice that will help if there is a bee on your way: you need to immediately, after colliding with it (they fly about 1.5 meters from the ground) - this is to sit on squatting and if she just flew her own way, then after circling over you for a while she will fly about her business
My grandfather had an apiary. Once it happened that I was standing about 30-40 meters from the hives and in a few minutes I was bitten by 3 bees. Did I move? At first not really, but after the 3rd bite, without thinking twice, I washed away.
The fact is that I was standing on the windward side straight along the "air corridor" of these fluffy buzzers. Smell. Bees are known for their aggressive behavior even at a decent distance from their hives.
So whether you move or not, the smell comes from you and it will not be difficult for bees to find its source (they find blooming plants).
If you are attacked by bees, move better and the faster the better. Preferably in the direction of the nearest shelter.
