Well on the Trans America highway there are loads from a lorry that spilled it's load. So of you want 12 million honey bees, you bet get there.

We could sure use some honeybees, most have died off. Of course, that means they would probably die too if they came here.

Poor bees :(

Has a full video about the decline of honey bees, it's pretty interesting.

I wonder if those bees were going to be used to pollinate fruits, foods and crops?

they "bee incident" was north of where i live...on the news last night they kept calling it a "sting operation" *sighs* lol

the news reports confirmed my belief that curiosity over-rules logic and common sense :) everyone was walking up to the truck to check it out...and of course, everyone got stung :thumbsup:
