Bees on Campus

Bees are essential pollinators, and their numbers are dwindling. If you find a swarm in your buildings or nearby structure, there is no need to poison them or hire fumigators. Help is available to remove bees safely (or even move them into a smart new wooden box in an appropriate place in your garden!).
