Well if it isn't enough that we're fighting mites, colony collapse & bees dying all over the world...now we have to worry about bee keepers stealing from bee keepers. A co-worker sent me an article the other day on Bee Rustlers. I'm pretty confident, now that I've been working with bees, that this just isn't someone who doesn't know the trade. Bee Keepers all over are loosing their hives at an alarming rate & I guess some bad bee keepers feel that they are more desperate than the others. Trying to re-coop their losses by steeling from the bee keeper family. Such a shame that it's come to this.
