Africanized honey bees were just found in Colorado. KVNF's Jake Ryan talks with Tri River extension agent Bob Hammon about what he found, what makes these bees different, and what this means for Colorado.
The Death of Bees is a story about two young girls living in a Glasgow, Scotland, housing project. And if you believe the first sentences of a novel are often the most difficult to write, try this beginning paragraph:
"Today is Christmas Eve. Today is my birthday. Today I am fifteen. Today I buried my parents in the backyard.
As awareness about the critical role bees play in agriculture grows, so has interest in backyard bee keeping. For KVNF and the iSeeChange project, Julia Kumari Drapkin looks into questions that North Fork Valley beekeepers have about bee swarms this year.
You can see a video of Rita Clagett’s honeybees on the iSeeChange and the KVNF Facebook pages. Stay tuned for more iSeeChange animal stories later this month.
