Bug Bytes - Bugging Bees

by The Bug Chicks

Listen now:

In this episode of Bug Bytes, we explore new technologies for tracking insects as they are on the move. In South America, orchid bees are wearing radio backpacks, Bees are some of the most important organisms on the planet, and scientists have devised an interesting new way to find out more about them.
