Why do beekeepers use smoke?

Using smoke in beekeeping is a way to disrupt communication between bees and, at the same time, to disorient them and lose their sense of direction. By disrupting their communication, the smoke makes it harder for them to know what’s going on. Smoke can be used to confuse the bees and make them more docile, giving beekeepers a better chance at collecting honey.
