When nearly 16,000 bees arrived at her home in crates Wednesday afternoon, Tracy Taylor put on a protective suit and gloves and got to work. Taylor, a senior at Wakefield High School in Raleigh, had built a wooden box in her backyard to house the bees as part of a school project. On Wednesday, she helped Mellisa Schug, co-owner of Oak City Bees, carefully transfer the insects from the crates to their new home. Madison Iszler miszler@newsobserver.com
