Criminals stung

Two thieves making off with beehives in Derbyshire, England had a torrid time when the hives came apart in their hands. They were seen running around a field in an agitated fashion. They eventually did get the two hives into their van -- and, with luck, things went from bad to worse.

The last beehive thefts in the area were seven years ago from, believe it or not, Beeley Moor.

Incidentally, some idiot took the roof and one empty super off my stack of stored supers in an out-apiary a few weeks ago. I have no idea what they wanted them for. Fortunately, I discovered the theft before the rain came pouring in on the empty frames and before (bee) robbing had begun.
