    Exclamation North Georgia Bee Thieves

    Just wanted to get the word out to the people in the north georgia area with bee yards to be on the lookout. Apparently, some persons are "vaccuming" out bees from the hives while no one is around. One of the beekeepers from the Dahlonega, GA come home during the middle of the day to find the folks removing the bees from his hives. They got to 4 of them. The two people got away, but some information has been passed on to the authorities. Please if you see or hear about anything, please pass this on to the Lumpkin County Sheriffs Office 706.864.0414
    Just be aware that this is happening.

    You have any more information on the two perpetrators? It is a small world...

    Unfortunately Georgia doesn't allow the use of deadly force to protect personal property unless it's in defense or prevention of a forcible felony.

    You really have to wonder. if they were stealing the entire hive, it might make some sense. What will they do with bees this time of year? It's surely too late to start a new hive from scratch.. Idiots...I'm thinkin'.
