Yesterday I learned something amazing about the managed migration of bees from NPR’s Planet Money Episode 756: The Bees Go To California.

Episode 756: The Bees Go To California
“VANEK SMITH: The size of this mass migration is stunning. In the span of a few weeks, 30 billion bees will be shipped from around the country to the Central Valley. They will pollinate enough flowers to create 700 billion almonds.”
I have a friend who owns 40 acres of almonds. She just told me the cost of hiring bees that morning before I listened to the podcast. So I sent her the link. She found the story interesting too.
