Busy as a bee: Pollinators put food on the table

Featuring The Weather Channel’s “From Bees to Blossoms”

Our fourth film follows commercial bee-keeper, Dave Hackenberg, as he trucks thousands of bees across the country to pollinate the country’s crops. From January through the summer, Dave loads his semi with hundreds of hives and drives from the almond tree blossoms in California to Florida and then onto Pennsylvania for apples, and finally all the way up to Maine for the blueberry pollination. Dave must track the weather forecast closely for the first signs of warming temperatures and spring so he can get his bees to the blooms on time to pollinate the year’s food crop.
