I feel sorry for the poor bees. They are struggling to survive in our area.

I heard that on the news this morning, kind of sad as the bee population has plumeted in the last 5 yrs. Those were probably all spearated hives each with a queen going to a bee farm. 

I plan on getting a hive someday.

    You would be surprised with the way they move bees in this country, that truck probably drives north and south each spring and fall with that swarm, of bees to pollinate different crops around the country.  I dont know much about bees but I have heard that that is one of the trouble's with the domestic or locale bees, the big farms call in these guys who bring in huge swarms to pollinated then they leave when it is done and that somehow hurts the locale bee population.  not sure how true it is but I heard that somewhere.

   Look into it you would be shocked how far they move them.
