At the Clift Hotel in San Francisco, there are more than 370 rooms inside and hundreds of thousands of bees buzzing above in rooftop hives outside.Aware of the well-publicized environmental threats to honeybees that have reduced numbers worldwide, seven San Francisco hotels have built hives on their rooftops.Farrar said the four hives on the rooftop garden support about 250,000 bees and produce about 1,000 pounds of honey each year.The bee hives at hotels are not new, but the effort is growing every year.At the Clift, high above the city on the rooftop garden, 10 hives are buzzing with activity.At the Clift, Garrison, who seems to like serving bees as much as people, configured the boxy hives like miniature skyscrapers to mimic the city grid below, with the gold dome of City Hall in the distance.
