Summary :

A kind-hearted, generous biologist spends his time raising bees, experimenting with breeding and selectivity to create the most productive bees in the world. Always looking for new and interesting insect combinations, he introduces a strain of bee from Borneo into his hive, increasing production several hundred fold. Delighted, he begins selling the queens from these hives, and only later realizes that they steal honey from other hives, bringing it "home", and thus destroying other farmers' crops.

Appalled, he attempts to refund the beekeepers he has already sold to, and while doing so, a senator takes revenge by cutting off his mail order bee business. Unable to continue refunding, he turns back to experimenting with a vengeance. But even he is not prepared for what results when he combines his bees with a dangerous looking wasp that flies into his work room one hot summer's day.
