Honey bee safety meeting - City of Tampa Water Department

Insect IQ gave a safety meeting to the City of Tampa Water Department this morning.  Honey bees, especially the African Killer Bee (AHB) like to live in low to the ground void areas.  Water meter boxes are a prime location for nesting sites.
