Commentary: Africanized honeybees: Always remember, ‘Nature bats last’

Patrick Pynes is president of the Northern Arizona Organic Beekeepers Association in Flagstaff. In this photo taken a few years ago, Pynes works with a colony of honeybees (living in the Village of Oak Creek) in a top bar hive.
The beekeeper says he rarely wears a veil while working with bees, but “working with the more defensive Africanized honeybees usually requires a bee suit with a ‘zip in’ veil.”
