Crass stupidiy in North Dakota

Ten beekeepers and a chemical company have been fined a total of nearly $190,000 for the unapproved use of sodium cyanide in North Dakota. Sodium cyanide has legal uses in mining, pharmaceuticals and chrome-plating, but beekeepers have been using it illegally as a pesticide. It turns into a deadly gas when it gets wet.

The beekeepers' behaviour sees to have been unbelievably stupid:

the beekeepers would mix a plastic ice cream bucket full of hot water and sulfuric acid, throw in a handful of sodium cyanide and run.
The investigation into the stray barrels of the chemical first started as a homeland security issue. The barrels were found last autumn.

Once again, I stand in awe of the overwhelming STUPIDITY and IDIOCY of so-called HUMANS!!!  evil   Given their apparent lack of concern for the neighbors and animals in the area, it's almost sad that they didn't get a whiff of their own brew!!!!!  evil

Bee Good, and for the sake of others, PLEASE Bee Careful ! ! !
