We humans are social beings. So are honey bees. And when up to 80,000 of them live together, like good roommates, they devise ways to keep things clean and healthy. Bees groom each other, clean their surroundings, and even eject sick or diseased larvae from the colony to ensure the health of the hive. We’ve learned that it’s in their DNA! We’ll share our discovery ofthe bee’s ‘clean’ genes, and how we believe this unconscious drive can be harnessed to help improve bee health and ensure our food security.
