I have a friend who runs a small trucking company. He has an offer to bring a semi load of bees back to the east coast. He has no experience in hauling bees. He asked my advice since I suppose he thought a beekeep would have some knowledge of this. I pointed out that I had not a clue as to how to go about it. The beekeep who is bringing the load back is supposed to meet him in CA and ride back with the driver so that will probably help. But basically he is concerned about the kind of permits that he would need to bring bees across the Country. I was pretty certain that he might need a health certificate from CA - but I really have no idea. Since I suspect that several of you are involved in trucking your bees I might know some folks with some pretty good advice. I told him that it might be helpful to know what route he would take back from CA - he seemed to think that I40 down through TX looked pretty good. I'd appreciate any advice or info that you guys have and I will pass this info onto him - since he is my friend.
