Good News Monday: Hey, Honey!

Bee-lieve it or not, scientists in Finland recently discovered a vaccine that could help save honeybees.

Still undergoing safety tests before it becomes commercially available, the vaccine helps the bee’s immune system identify and fight against harmful diseases, similar to the way antibodies work in our own bodies.

And no, they won’t have to catch the bees and inject them with tiny little needles! The vaccine will be delivered via an edible sugar patty.  (I know you were worried.)
