This video shows the information gathered by bee guardian Jen Rasmussen Lair, through observations and regular hive maintenance. After gathering information about what could cause the losses and the evidence of unusual colors, odors, and dead bees, Jen discovered that there was a correlation between these symptoms and when the owners of the neighboring properties would spray herbicide.
