    The Article said:
    The accident raises a number of questions, but mainly, why was there a truck full of bees?

    .... seriously? Lazy journalism. They knew where the truck was coming from but they couldn't ask a simple question to help their readers figure it out?

    FYI: most orchards, vineyards and other farms don't own their own beeeees, but they need beeeees to pollinate their apples/flowers/potatoes/alfalfa/other produce. Most places rent the beeeeeeeees they need. It's completely normal for bees to get transported by truck. I guess it's a better story if they make it sound weird.

    It's always seemed odd to me that they wouldn't want their own beeeeeees. I mean the farmers know they need the beeeeeeesss to pollinate all of their crops, why not make some extra money on the side selling all of the honey the beeeeeeees produce? Is the cost of a beeeeeeee farm to substantial or something?

    Well there's been a bee shortage for years. I wouldn't be surprised if that had something to do with it.

    MAYBE THIS SORT OF CARELESSNESS IS WHY.

    This is why you pay out the extra for a Greyhound. Bees need to stop traveling around like they are some sort of cargo or something. Have some goddamn self-respect, bees.

    There's no bee shortage.

    They're merely lying in wait underground, biding their time before their numbers are great enough to rise up and take their place as Earth's true numeo uno

    It does involve some specialized equipment. When I was a kid my father kept beeeeeees for pollination, but after about 10 years of beekeeping he started developing an allergic reaction to the stings. At that point it was just easier to hire a beekeeper to move the hives and tend to them then it was to keep doing it himself.

    They do it this way because it's mutually beneficial: the orchards get their [whatever] pollinated, and the hive owner gets a wider variety of honey than the local agriculture can produce.

    The people who supply my honey for brewing send their bees off to various locations to pollenate. They get orange blossom, buckwheat, wildflower, alfalfa, clover honey this way.
