Houston, TX- Great Day Houston's Courtney Perna shows a project in H-town that makes sure that honey keeps on flowing.
A note from Courtney Perna:
When safely removing an unwanted hive, experts sometimes use a smoking technique (shown during the segment). This is not a toxic gas, instead, Walter Schumacher, the “bee czar” says, this simulates a forest fire which causes the bees to return to the hive. Then, the honeycomb is removed with many of the bees inside it. The remaining insects are vacuumed up and relocated, along with their original hive.
