Drummond Mentioned in BDN Article About Bees Involved in Delaware Accident

The Bangor Daily News cited information from Frank Drummond, an entomology specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and a UMaine professor of insect ecology, in an article about a truck carrying millions of bees overturning and releasing the bees on Interstate 95 in Delaware. The bees were heading to Ellsworth-based Allen’s Blueberry Freezer Inc., according to the article. The article cited a previous BDN report, in which Drummond stated the cost of renting hives can be a blueberry grower’s single most expensive management practice, but that the practice results in higher yields.
