Covered in Bees!

AP: Truck Carrying 9M Bees Spills in Mont.

A tractor-trailer overturned on a curve on a highway, spilling its load of hundreds of bee hives and unleashing some nine million angry honey bees. … The state road was closed for 14 hours as crews and beekeepers cleaned up the 512 hives Miller was hauling from Idaho to North Dakota. In spite of bee suits and extra clothing, beekeeper Gary Clark said he counted about 60 stings of his own.

Am I the only one who didn’t know that bees are shipped cross-country in trucks?
