New kind of traffic is buzzing


Bees are facing challenges from parasites, pesticides, declining food supplies and extreme weather. But thanks to “bee highways” over Atlanta and Raleigh-Durham areas and Bee Downtown, there’s hope for the pollinators.

The highways contain networks of hives placed about three miles apart (stretching 36 miles long in Atlanta). Three miles is how far honey bees are likely to fly in search of food. Bee Downtown’s main goal is to introduce the idea of agriculture back into cities and people’s everyday lives, helping the environment and the bees.

A few Atlanta partners include Chick-fil-A, Pinewood Forest and Delta.
