Turns out the best defense is a good bee fence, according to the Butterfly Pavilion. Their international program teaching farmers how to protect crops using a perimeter of honey bees as a non-violent and effective deterrent was recently featured on 9News. The method is proving to be an ingenious way to keep the peace with resident elephants (yes elephants) while also promoting healthier crops through pollination. As an added bonus, farmers can also package and sell the honey. The program, happening in Nepal and Tanzania so far, is a win, win, win, win … for elephants, farmers, honey enthusiasts and the environment.
