X word buzz

I've decided to take note of the incidence of BEE related clues in the Times crossword puzzles. This decision came to me this morning with - if not the significance of Paul's conversion on the road to Damascus - still, a very satisfying light bulb flash in the brain.
Today's 41 down: DEALING WITH HONEY MAKERS: Apian
(It is somewhat disturbing to note that this blog's spellcheck does not recognize the word Apian. But then, it doesn't recognzie the possessive form of blog either.)

A few day or weeks ago, if I recall correctly, there was this clue: COMB MAKERS: Bees.
