Honey Bee Adoption Service

Clip | 5m 49s

Carol Jackson visits Carrboro & Hillsborough to look at efforts to provide "adoption services" to raise the number of honey bees in the state. The bee shortage is hurting farmers in NC because bees are needed to pollinate crops. Crop loss due to the bee shortage is costing farmers across the country billions of dollars. Leaders of the beekeeping industry want more people to go into apiculture.
