South Australia beekeeper Josh Kennet has trained Bazz to sniff out a disease called American foulbrood that has been wiping out entire hives.
He said: "The process of training Bazz and developing the suit has been an attempt to find a better way of controlling American foulbrood disease. "Detection and quarantine processes are essential to save our bees . I realised that Bazz was able to sniff out the disease, and save thousands of bees - but he didn’t like being around them too much when he was getting stung. "So I’ve tried to develop a suit the dog can wear and hopefully avoid being stung." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2611101/Barking-wrong-bee-Bazz-beekeeping-dog-wears-special-suit-protect-stings-sniffing-disease-wipes-hives.html #savethebees #beethecure
