The King of queen bees

In Feb­ruary, Lena King saw an open bee hive for the first time, and she was hooked. “There’s just some­thing cap­ti­vating about the way bees func­tion, the way they move,” said King, S’15, a fourth-​​year biology major at Northeastern.

King is the lab man­ager for Best Bees, an urban bee­keeping com­pany located in Boston’s South End neigh­bor­hood and founded by North­eastern alum Noah Wilson RichAS’05. While on co-​​op, she’s spent her days observing what she calls these “golden and beau­tiful” organisms.
