    Hi Randi.

    How's it going with the bees? Are you still keeping bees?

    Re: semi hauling bees over turns near home

    Most commercial beekeepers that I know haul their own bees. I think that after working bees during the day and then hauling bees at night a person could be really tired.

    Re: semi hauling bees over turns near home

    I read an earlier article about this crash and the reason they didn't try saving them was because the boxes were a total loss. The truck went off the road and slid on its side for 75'.

    Honey-B-Health aka HBH will help preserve syrup for a couple months if kept in a cool place so I would think you could get 4 or more months if your keeping it in the fridge.
