We welcome our new Mayan overlords… with ZOMBIE BEES. Seriously.
San Francisco biologists have made a macabre discovery that might help explain the mysterious crash of honeybee populations: parasites that turn bees into zombies.
Infected bees go mad, abandoning their hive in a suicidal rush toward bright lights, according to a new study by San Francisco State researchers.
“It’s the flight of the living dead,” said lead investigator and biology professor John Hafernik, also president of the California Academy of Sciences.
FLIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Brilliant B movie creature feature title, right? Every body freak out! Happy new year!
