Would you grab a hive with 40,000 bees with your bare hands? This guy does
HYDE PARK — There were 40,000 bees flying freely around Greg Lane’s Subaru station wagon as he drove out of Englewood.
Lane, a bearded Hyde Parker in a T-shirt and jeans, runs Chicago Honeybee Rescue and is one of the very few people in Chicago who knows how to remove feral honeybee nests without harming any of the insects or their precious honey.
He said he didn’t see the need to put a lid on the box as he loaded the bees into the backseat.
