    This was shown this week. I got my BP up a bit because it's another example of media using scare tactics to get people to watch their show and then they misslead the viewer. The video is titled "Bees out of control" WHAT?!?!? Just because your hive swarm you have out of controlled bees??? Does anyone on this site know who this guy is; Andrew Cote, founder of the NYC Beekeepers Assoc? He state that "Happy bees stay home". Really?!?!? Wow, he sure is educating the public about swarms....NOT!

    Here's the link for the episode

    Oh, I forgot to add that in the lead up promo for this episode. The voice over for the World News Tonight states " Dangerous swarm of bees" and "Swarms taking over" Wow, talk about inflamatory words. No wonder people will kill the bees first, then ask a beekeeper later.

    I wondered what was up. An elderly neighbor lady saw the program and asked if my bees were OK as well as my mother in law.
