Why Honeybees Are Good at Grooming (It’s All in the Hair)

December 31, 1969 |

The tenants of the Georgia Tech Urban Honeybee Project are creating quite a buzz about themselves and David Hu's research. Hu, an associate professor in the School of Biological Sciences, recently used bees in the project for a research paper on how the hairs on their tiny little legs factor into pollen gathering and cleanup. The New York Times put the resulting video with the cute title "How Bees Freshen Up" on its home page. The Urban Honeybee Project's director is Jennifer Leavey, a senior academic professional in the School of Biological Sciences.
