Ouch Mann Lake
« on: May 23, 2021, 10:26:00 am »
There is a lesson to be learned here, but we will need more information than what is given in this story. https://www.yahoo.com/news/shipment-containing-over-million-bees-152658482.h
Instead of paying UPS to ship, I would have hitched up a trailer and drove to Pennsylvania to pick those bees up.

So sad.  So frustrating.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people

The article calls them "shipping boxes" but my guess is they were packaged bees.  I have gotten numerous emails from Mann Lake advertising packaged bees. I am surprised any of the bees were left alive.

Oh that's horrible.  :'(
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.
