Have your own supply of fresh honey produced by your own colony of bees, which you carry around in your hair. The bees, which could tend to be unruly, would be kept under control by exploiting the magnetite which they share as a little understood quality with several other arthropods. A series of progammable, variable control magnets would direct the behaviour of the bees and could be used to confine the swarm to a pleasantly orbiting cloud which would only stray when permitted to search for nurishment.

       Just sleep during Autumn as the first frosts begin through 'til Spring, or fiddle with the magnets.

       Put beeswax in your ear and lie down very carefully?

       <kind of off topic> Have there been any studies of the effects of magnetic fields on Africanized bees?   

       //Have there been any studies of the effects of magnetic fields on Africanized bees// - they've been gradually moving towards the North Pole.
