Bee Pointing

Here is a short film outlining an old pastime called Bee Pointing. The Pointer catches bees, gets them to orient to a spot and calculates the distance to the hive by timing their return trips and then tries to follow them to find the bee tree. I’d love to give this a try. Thomas’s work has shown that there are 2.5 wild colonies per SQ mile in upstate NY. Gives me hope for wild bees in Massachusetts. http://ow.ly/ZpnUS
