This doesn't surprise me. I help load a couple of trucks that had multiple beeks bees and some beeks hives were noticeably light going out to Cali. So light in fact that several of us mentioned it to the beeks saying we didn't think they would make it with no reserves and they wanted them shipped anyway. I am hoping that these guys hives made grade, but if they had no resources to tap into in Cali between Nov/Dec and now they are going to be hurting.
