Honey Badger vs. Bee Hive


Honey badgers, honey and badger-proof hives.

Honey badgers do indeed enjoy honey and they have become a scourge to beekeepers, shrugging off countless stings as it breaks into their hives. As the Nature on PBS program details, beekeeper Guy Stubbs tries to devise a hive that will thwart them, but effective badger-proof hives prove difficult to design. When Stubbs is ready to field test his latest effort, he enlists Stoffel and Hammy, a younger female badger, to try their luck, and can’t believe it when his hopes are dashed yet again.

Honey Badgers: Masters of Mayhem premieres Wednesday, February 19, 2014, on PBS.
