Bees and Elephants

Farmers in Africa were having trouble having crops as Elephants would come through their land and just travel in a straight line - which means going straight through their crops, houses anything in their way.

They tried lots of different approaches but they didn't work.

There is only one thing that elephants are afraid of - BEES.

At the start taped bee "music" (buzzing) was recorded and played in the areas they wanted to protect.  For the first time the elephants stopped, looked around and listened then these huge animals about turned and went away.

A project was started of placing bee hives around the fields they wanted to keep the elephants out of.

This is keeping the elephants out of the crops, allowing vegetables to grow, and an added bonus, they now have a honey industry as well.

 

Please watch the video for complete details.  Fascinating.
