Latest result: Bulldozer 27, Beehives 0

Twenty-seven hives have been bulldozed in Alva, Florida. Beekeeper Wesley Bennefield would quite like an apology and compensation -- perhaps as much as $6,100, but that doesn't seem likely as he had failed to register his hives (required in Florida) and hadn't requested permission to site his hives by Hendry County Canal. The bulldozer workers thought the hives had been abandoned.
