    Exclamation Epic Disaster

    A Peru Beekeeper's misfortune described through translation as a grass fire which moved into the hives that were too close to the ground. I looks just like a nightmare...

    Looks like a Bee Apocalypse. That's too bad. I saw something like that first hand one time. They might as well let them burn because there won't really be anything salvagable.

    That is just sad to see. That beek lost a lot in that fire.

    The word "epic" is so overused, I was expecting something much less than "epic". Yes, that looks fairly "epic" at least in the life of that beekeeper. Wow!

    >...the hives that were too close to the ground.

    You think they would have burned less if they were higher?

    You're right the disaster would have been similar & if not fire lit they probably would have choked from excessive smoke... I just said that because it was in the translation & I thought maybe a 2' metal stand would have helped, it looks as though some of the hives in the pic did not light up... A true tragedy though
