Invent a crisis of nature, claim to know what caused it, claim that:
A) Insectisides did it

C) Man made Global Warming did it
D) It's a United States government/corporations conspiracy

E) All of the above

Found the following the web sites of a person that "rescues" bees. He domesticates Africanized bees.

Bee Removal and Rescue

Bee Adventures

There is a industry out there that builds bee vacuums.
