Attack of the Killer Bees, ehhh
« on: June 30, 2008, 03:00:05 PM »

12 million bees freed in truck accident

Twelve million honey bees were released along Canada's largest highway in northwest New Brunswick today after a transport truck overturned.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police said a truck carrying 330 crates of bees was negotiating a ramp when the load shifted and the truck overturned.

Police said a downpour of rain has helped to contain the bees in and around the truck.
"Mother Nature has been very cooperative with us. Bees don't like the rain ... thousands of bees are hanging on the back of this truck and on the pavement right behind," said RCMP spokesman Derek Strong.

Bee experts from Agriculture Canada were called in to help deal with the accident.

Strong said paramedics and ambulances were also on standby in case people endure multiple bee stings or have an allergic reaction to a sting.

The driver of the truck was not hurt.

Richard Duplain, vice-president of the New Brunswick Beekeepers Association, said it was difficult to predict whether the bees would be docile or agitated given their ordeal.

"It's certainly not a situation where you want to tempt problems," said Duplain. "You certainly don't want to go walking through a field of disoriented, agitated and wet honey bees."

Duplain said if the bees aren't captured quickly, they could disperse into the countryside and find a home inside a tree hollow or another protected area, though it's unlikely they'd survive very long.

In related news, I was stung by a bee twice in my own *goshdarn* living room Saturday.  Sat down on the couch, felt two stings, looked down and a bee was lying on the pillow.  I have two big ass welts on my side that itch like hell.

A bee lying on a pillow Shocked, the poor bee was probably stoned and had to lie down, after flying around your living room and taking in all that smoke. Grin
