Plot Bart is forced to play a prank a group of second graders (including Lisa) by Jimbo, Kearney and Dolph, by knocking a Bees Hive near them. Lisa ties to fend off the Bees only to discover that they are all dead.

Meanwhile, Mr. Burns is at a billionare camp, in a poker game, Burns bets Smithers while The Rich Texan bets his Basketball team and Burns wins.

It is discovered that the bees are dying out due to a case of Bee Measles. A uninfected Queen soon stings Lisa and to protect it, Lisa forces it to remain on her face, soon a small hive gives Lisa a beard of bees.

While watching a basketball game his team is playing he spots the owner of the other team, Mark Cuban at the Dallas Cowboys game, who appears to be enjoying his money, providing entertainment for the fans.

Marge shows Lisa an abandoned greenhouse where they can live and form a colony. But that is soon torn down for a new stadium in Springfield, built by Burns.

With Lisa depressed, Homer and Moe try to help by cross-breeding two queens to form a breed of bees that can survive anything.

When Homer tries to show them to Lisa, they seem particularly angry, and when released, they head to the new stadium that looks like a hive, and after a few months, they do indeed form a series of catacombs.
