Ancient Egyptians. The soldiers commonly wore scarab beetles into battle as the beetles were considered to have supernatural powers of protection against enemies.

"Egyptians were practicing the art of beekeeping at least 4,500 years ago as depicted on the walls of sun temple of Nyuserre Ini from the 5th Dynasty dated earlier than 2422 BC. Scenes on the temple walls depict workers blowing smoke into hives as they removed honeycombs".
