    We always have to watch out for the Africanized "killer" bees around SA. Hopefully these were normal honey bees that he had on board.

    Yea, he was not hauling killer bees. lol

    I have never heard of this, it would keep them on the truck too.
    If a guy hauled them into Cali, how would they inspect them?

    I knew he wasn't; I was worried that the crash could have upset a nearby colony of killer bees.

    I have a healthy respect for all bees and the role that play in our ecosystem, and I admit that I worry about killer bees for two reasons: you can't tell the difference between a normal honey bee and a killer with the naked eye, and, killer bees have been known to invade colonies of ordinary honey bees.
     
    Bud A. and mjd4277 Thank this.
