ZomBEEs Invade San Francisco!!!

No, that’s not a typo: zombees are invading San Francisco!

That’s zombees not zombies!

A parasitic fly is infecting honey bees, making them act oddly… like zombies.

The Phorid fly injects its eggs into a honey bee where they’ll eventually hatch into larva and begin to eat their way out of the bee!!

These parasitized bees go crazy and leave their hives at night and fly at lights and do other weird things most normal bees don’t do. (Bees never fly at night.)

Thank goodness a scientist at San francisco State University is on the case!!

What’s cool is you can help!

If you notice bees by you acting strange, you can help with the science.

Just go HERE and follow the instructions on how to join in on the experiment!

Get out there and science some bees!

Check out the video (above) to see some freaky, infected zombees!
