Entomologist David Gilley is part of the team investigating the usurpation of
European honey bee colonies by swarms of Africanized honey bees. Because queenless
colonies are particularly susceptible to usurpation, the team maintains a group
of queenless colonies to lure usurpation swarms into their apiary to be studied.
Gilley is shown here requeening one of these "bait colonies."
