Training bees to sniff out explosives

Bolivar, TN(Zone 7a)

Just found out that over 2 million in tax money was spendt on training bees to sniff out explosives. No kidding. Bees are taped to the end of a straw, exposed to different types of explosives, then given sugar water. After several tries when they smell explosives, they stick out their tongues. Now some genius has proposed keeping observation hives in the walls of airports so bees can be removed, taped to straws and waved over baggage. What I could have done with the 2 million.
