You have to go to the link to watch the video, but it’s pretty interesting seeing how they remove bees from a wall (as opposed to exterminating them).
“I’m not really terrified of the beesâ€¦ I just remained calm, and I figured they wouldn’t bother me too muchâ€¦ I got stung once, but I was more curious about how big the hive actually was. I figured it was just a small clump of 1,000 or so,” Chen said.
After his investigation, he spent a month on the road, traveling for work. When he returned, Chen found time to call a professional to assess the situation. He explained that he recently saw a documentary about the endangerment of bees, so he wanted to save – not exterminate – them.
He found a man on Craigslist, who goes by the name Mike Bee, who said he would safely remove the bees. He is a member of the rescue organization Backwards Beekeepers, a group that works with HoneyLove.org in order to educate the public about bees.
