TED talk showing a honeybee being born

Last year, there was a TED (Technology, Education & Design)  talk by a person who raised honeybees in his backyard and figured out a way to video what happens in the cell from an egg to the birth of the bee. He also talks about varroa mites (one of the honey bee’s biggest challenge) and the current research on varroa resistant bees.

It’s a pretty amazing video:
