While out searching for flowers, Bette finds a group of lost walking bees. Having believed that she and Queen Bee were the last remaining bees, Bette brings them to her home where they meet her friends, Grub, Spider and the very sick old last Tree. Two villagers, the Bumbelle Sisters come to the Tree looking for food but the insects chase them away. Doreen brings back the Exterminator to rid the Tree of bugs.
