We are getting the snow ball story here.
Last night on the NBC local station there were 50,000 bees. this morning on the ABC local station there were 5 Million bees, During the noon report. During GMA, ABC's morning New they said 9 million bees.
We were also told that a bee recovery team was called in but at noon they said all the bees had been killed.
Why call in a recovery team then kill all those bees?
The links, story leaves a lot to be desired I feel in the way of real information.

It takes a while to count all those bees. Then they move on you and you have to start over.

How many hives on the truck and how many bees per hive do you think?

They took what probably seemed quicker and easier and wiped them out.

That is so sad. Yup lets just kill em with water and get along with are life. I cant stand it when people always take the easy way out. 12 million bees, that is professional there. Some day I plan to have 500 hives so that is close, there where 480 hives on the truck. So sad :cry: . bye
