Episode – When Elephants Attack
This is a show worth watching for elephant conservation.
Elephants are afraid of bees. It’s interesting. Then again the African Killer Bees are something of which to be afraid. One farm in Kenya or Tanzania was using a bee fence to keep the elephants from eating their crops. They had 86% less elephant damage than the farm next door that didn’t have a bee fence. The farm also did a test to show that the sound of bees (that wonderful elephant memory at work) causes the elephants to leave. And the older elephants thus teach the younger ones that this sound is bad – run away. The farm test bee buzzing and a white noise on the same frequency as the buzz. The white noise got no reaction from the elephants. Watch the episode, it’s at the end.
