    Default Truck load of dead bees?

    A friend sent me this pic this morning. Truck load of shrink wrapped hives. He said there were a lot of dead bees in the wrap. I see a lot of truck load of bees going down the road, but never seen them wrapped like this. Thoughts?

    He said there was a another truck behind that one with more wrapped hives and a fork lift. He didn't get the name but said it was something apiary services out of Manor, TX.

    Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.

    Those aren't hives. Those are supers. Probably wet from extracting and ready to put on hives somewhere. Were they full of honey it would take a heck of a tall and strong person to stack them that high on a pallet and a heck of a strong machine to lift them.

    Full approximately 2100 lbs, more or less. So that truck and trailer would be over weight I suspect. Must be empty.
