Arson attack of bees in the US

Did anyone see this news report yesterday?

Arsonists burn more than half a million bees in shocking attack

Apart from my initial horror and disgust, I am concerned that this might not be a ‘one off’ event due to either, idiots copying this stupidity, or worse still, that it might be related to some of the animal activism we have seen recently.

I hope this tragedy is not repeated, but just in case, keep your ears to the ground.

Cheers, Ian

It happens every year. Sad as it is there are people out there who want to sabotage our food supply, kill bees for a multitude of reasons. It’s a huge problem because bee farmers can not obtain insurance for bees. If you kill the bees of a commercial bee keeper you basically ruin that business and the bees. It’s really sickening.

I did see it. I live in northwest Houston, Alvin isn’t all that far from here.

I hope someone got stung. Repeatedly.
