As a bee-keeper for thirty years of so, I can assure the bees 
are not calm when they smell smoke, but rather appear 
agitated.  When smoke is present they quickly 'load up' with 
all the honey they can carry and exit a hive body, in what is 
no doubt an evolved [or intelligently designed] reaction to 
possible loss of hive contents to fire

I understand the assertion, but wonder at its implication of 
causation.  Perhaps rather as a hypothesis, bees attack things 
which look like common attackers: unwashed and furry forest 
creatures, and people in clothing other than [optically 
bright] and unusual white
