Bees On The Loose

bee manEscaped bees abuzz in N.B.

Approximately 12 million honeybees have escaped from a truck that overturned on the Trans-Canada Highway in New Brunswick.
Rain in the area is currently keeping the bees under control, said RCMP Sgt. Derek Strong.

They’re being imported because pesticides have been killing the natural population of bees.

Update: From another CBC article, they were being exported after fulfilling a pollination gig.
