Some of the bees escaped the truck; however, those that remained at the scene were killed after being sprayed by firefighters.
The cost in damages is at least $90,000, authorities said. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.


f me, people are ignorant about bees.

'the Finesilver Curve '
When the curve has a name, you know it's drenched in blood.

Article doesn't say if the truck was sprayed because of the bees or as a precaution for fire.  But agree with your statement.

The photo of the brood frame means they weren't carry package bees but nucs?

They must have called in Jack

Had to have been nucs. Bought some Italian nucs last year, brought in from another state. They came in on a semi just like that, I met the truck along with about 50 other folks who had bought nucs from them as well. As long as they're sealed during the trip, they're fine.

But this just makes me sick, maybe they were fighting a fire, yes. But they should have called in a beekeeper care of the rest of the load, that was silly and wasteful and just stupid.


Self-defeating, perhaps even murderous and/or suicidal.

We need the bees. Period

Actually, the practice of transporting bees around the country to pollinate is precisely the thing that's destroying the local wild bee populations. Those tourist bees are spreading diseases to the indigenous bee population wherever they go.

The local bees have most of their food taken during the time period the invaders are placed. The invaders bring pestilence with them, often to populations with no natural resistance.

It's a sucky practice that should be banned outright, because certain wild species are already on the brink of extinction.

Yes, this is absurd...there seems to be very little awareness around the problem of the reducing bee population. It's going to be really obvious when we have problems with the food supply.

I'm guessing they deliberately killed the bees, just like they try to neutralize and secure any hazmat cargo in a wreck.
