Half-Million Bees Swarm Seattle Airport on Purpose

Aug. 15 (Bloomberg) -- There are half-a-million bees living at the Seattle Airport. Since 2006, 30% of the bee colonies in the U.S. have vanished. A huge problem, considering Bees pollinate 1/3rd of everything humans eat. In an effort to save the bees and utilize undeveloped airport land, Sea-Tac has given Bee Keeper Bob Redmond $500 dollars and 50 acres for breeding. The 500,000 bees living at the airport fly 5.5 million times a day, 5,500 times that of the commercial flights at Sea-Tac. (Source: Bloomberg)
