    Default Looks like the Honey Bee Killers Returned to our Honey Bee Sanctuary

    As if CCD is not killing enough honey bees. Back in December 2012, 3 guys used a fire extinguisher and killed thousands of our rescued honey bees. Now in April of this year (2013) it looks like they came back. This time they drained our water tanks which is the only water source for our honey bees and did other acts of vandalism to our Honey Bee Sanctuary and Pollinator Habitat.

    I'm sure for a reasonable fee you could find someone who would be willing to camp out with a gun and deal with them if they return.

    Has this act been exposed and publicized in your entire community, county, and state? I think a public would want to know who is doing what. Maybe organizing and rallying some public pressure would make authorities do something. This behavior is totally unacceptable.

    Are the state and county laws prohibiting the destruction of livestock, property, or agriculture products? If not, people need to get the laws changed. Organizations for preservation of life should be contacted too; like the Conservation Ecosystem Protection or Green Peace. Maybe even contact some animal rights groups like;WEEAC, WSPA, or PETA. Some might not consider bees as animals, but they are alive and extremely valuable to our ecosystem. I don’t always agree with everything these groups do, but their aggression might be put to good use here.

    A really aggressive attorney could push for huge amounts of lifetime damages and prospective losses; especially in the wake of a pollinator shortage as exists in California. A law suit should also include the parents of the teens as well for neglect in supervision.

    Just some thoughts.
    No one famous.

    Oh please! Bee rescue, Really? Were they seized from someone who was starving them or treating them inhumanely? I am in no way in support of the scoundrels who would do such a thing, and do feel they should be punished. But I think you are as much of a scoundrel using bee rescue to fund your hobby interest. At least be honest and beg openly not under the guise of a rescue. Bees do just as well in the wild as they do in captivity. They do not need someone rounding up their swarms and calling it rescuing them.

    Were they convicted ?...or are they just alleged criminals...have they been charged...and why don't you have IRS 501 (3) (c) non profit status ? Are you for profit ? I think tenbears is thinking right... codyjp..it's for lack of paying taxes

    Tenbears I think you are a bit confused as to what we do. Yes, Bee Rescues ! Yes, Pollinator Habitats ! What would you do when someone calls you about bee problems and says come get them or I'm calling an exterminator to kill them? That is a Rescue. We do not extract their by-products like honey and sell it, do you ?? Are you providing chemical free Pollinator Habitats in a natural environment as we are? Are you hauling in water to supply your bees with a water source as we are ? We are not in this for the money, nor as a hobby, just trying to do our part to save bees that otherwise would be killed. Believe me we are not making any profits with our endeavors to save the bees.

    "A waste of good honey"? Maybe better defined as taking food from babies ?
