    Sad Bee Kill

    This is what happens when the public doesn't have any idea what honeybees are.











    Have a few more photos but these are the most relevant to the sad situation.

    That is sad. Most beekeepers would have came and got them for free. I'll bet they didn't even bother to dispose of the comb (saturated with poison), in a way that other bees wouldn't get to it. This is exactly why I am thinking about volenteering at local schools to teach about honeybees.

    That is ashame! I have had many times the same thing happen. People call me acting like that they love bees and they want me to remove them. But when I arrive there, there are 100's of them dead near entrance.
