It shocked and saddened me to read this story on CBC News: Millions of bees stolen from Alberta honey producer. A beekeeper and honey producer, Bill Termeer of Alberta has had more than 150 of his hives stolen recently and suspects another beekeeper is to blame.

I can’t imagine any of the beekeepers that I’ve met either in person or online doing something like this. Beekeepers are typically such honest people but obviously there’s at least one out there that has no respect for other beekeepers.

Have you ever experienced bee theft or vandalism? Leave a comment below.
