    Default Trucks on I-10 New Mexico and West Texas

    I just came back from almonds, we took our bees on our own under 26k rig.
    It is amassing to witness such a migration of bees and people that love their bees.
    Some areas at the almond valleys are just packed with beekeepers and their equipment fills hotels and gas stations. I just loved it!
    Anyways, at the New Mexico's beekeepers association on Facebook, there is an announcement of a possible rollover of semi full of bees on I-40

    I live in Anthony NM, between Las Cruces and El Paso TX a few miles from I-10; may a beekeeper run into problems and may need a hand, please let us know, we would be glad to help out without any monetary gain. I will keep my truck with a tank full and bee suits on hand so that we can run to help you -hopefully never. I pray for good and safe travel to all; may the rumor of the turned over semi just stay as a rumor and nothing else.

    We sent over 120,000 hives from FL to CA for almonds this year. That is to say Florida Apiary Inspection certified 120,000 for shipment.

    I hope your statistical numbers were not "cooked" by RR

    As a former West Coast resident, I understand how all those southeast states sort of all blend together for Westerners. But RR was a Mississippi "chef", not Florida.

    No "cooking" I supervise the Out of State Shipping Permits, RIFA certificates, California Compliance Agreements, and get the calls in the middle of the night from the Ag Interdiction stations. There were a few that left FL without paperwork, not included in the 120,000, that I get called from the CA station.

    AmericasBeekeeper,
    About 5 weeks ago, at the last few miles of Arizona on I-10, I saw a truck full of hives heading east. I asked the inspector about it at the CA station taking care of my cargo, she told me the truck and cargo had "issues". It was a truck from Florida.
    I just felt bad about the beekeeper that sent that load, I just hope he was able to rescue it somehow.

    I brought my bees home from Livingston last night, North on 99 I seen four flatbeds pulling trailered hummerbees and loads of hives on them!! I felt like an anchovy swimming with great white sharks with my small load of 6 hives!! They are doing major construction on Hwy 99 in both directions in Modesto so the traffic was terrible, even at 10 PM. The plus side, I let a beekeeper cut in front of me on the merge to one lane and I got to stare at the boxes, pallets, tie downs and the hummer bee!! Beats just watching tail lights.
