Couple hope bee technique causes swarm

Adam Finkelstein and Kelly Rausch met because of bees. Now, about 15 years later, the chemical-free bees they breed together are creating a bit of a buzz.
In 1995, Finkelstein was a graduate student at Virginia Tech studying insects, specializing in honeybees, and working as a teaching assistant. Rausch, a biology student, was in one of his classes. By 1996, they were a couple.

When they are not at their jobs, they breed queen bees and sell them to both commercial beekeepers and hobbyists.
