Saving Feral Honey Bees at SLAC

Not too long ago, I did an interesting job for the good folks at SLAC and the Department of Energy. Unbeeknownst (yes, that’s a word play) to many of the employees, a very healthy hive had been living in the old oak tree. Best guess, the hive was about 30 years old. It wasn’t until the oak tree started dying and the hive grew that people really started to take notice. The good news is that SLAC wanted to save the honey bees and transplant them to other areas to help combat colony collapse disorder.
