Sustainable Pest Control: Herman Miller’s Bees

I was helping Adam do a school project. He had to find all the “stuff” made in Michigan and create a brochure about it. I wanted to show him HermanMiller and expose him to some great designers like Eames and Noguchi. OK...a bit much for a 10 year old, but at least I am not drilling him with flash cards! I was hoping to show him that there are some great companies still left in Michigan. HermanMiller being one of them...well in doing so, I came across something interesting for both of us...

You have heard of Burt's Bees...well Burt doesn't really own the bees anymore. HermanMiller does...own their bees...600,000 of them! I found this cool piece about how they got rid of their wasp problem without using pesticides. They did it with a little help from their sweet loving friends. Enjoy...
