    Millions of Bees Spilled on Vegas Freeway

    By Associated Press
    Published December 16, 2004, 8:31 AM CST

    LAS VEGAS -- A truck carrying 12 million honeybees hit a wall on a highway ramp, dumping its load across the pavement shortly before the evening rush hour.

    The truck was carrying 480 bee colonies, each with 25,000 insects, to California to pollinate the state's almond crop when it struck the wall Wednesday afternoon.

    The collision spilled the bees and gallons of honey onto the highway and forced troopers to close the southbound ramp between Interstate 15 and U.S. Highway 95 for more than four hours.

    State police believe the driver lost control on the curving ramp.

    Authorities summoned beekeepers to help but decided capturing the bees alive would take too much time and money. Firefighters doused the insects with water to kill them.

    "We're talking millions of bees," said Don Grogan, owner of Sedona Honey Co. in Las Vegas, who was helping with the cleanup. "And tomorrow they'll all be dead. ... It breaks my heart."

    I hope this is a joke and that you really didn't misread the article...otherwise, that would be sad.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

    I can't believe they killed all those beers with water... damn shame.

    Do you know how big a truck you'd have to have to carry 12 million beers? Has AKAK turned you on to the paint chips, Help is on the way?

    If they were Lite beers they were mostly water to begin with. I just hope they weren't killer beers.

    These beerkeepers are a disgrace to the beerkeeping profession! With all those beers to capture, you call for reinforcements and take as much time as necessary to capture those damn beers alive, pop their tops with your own hands, and kill each and every beer as every beer should be killed. These beerkeepers are obviously not unionized.
  7. of course i didn't misread...that's just my sense of humor.....kind of hit or miss i guess. but keep that in mind for the future, and you'll get more laughs out of my posts.....
