How do you move 100,000 bees from Connecticut to Texas in August?

Posted on in In the News

Nancy Moran and her students moved 100,000 bees from Connecticut to Texas in a minivan ... in August. To keep the bees from overheating, they kept the AC cranked to the max during the day and left the windows down at night. "It seemed unlikely that anyone would try to steal something from a van full of bees," says Moran.

As part of the Behind the Scenes series, the National Science Foundation partnered with LiveScience to present "A Gut Feeling: Studying the Bugs in Bees" (May 12, 2014)
