The site had already been fenced, salvage and asbestos removal was ready to commence but the bees remained, few people were game to go anywhere near the swarm of ever increasingly angry yellow necked stingey doodles. Sure, extermination companies would be happy to come and well, terminate the bees but surely there is a better way? Knowing nothing of bees but assuming them to have some inherent value considering that an established hive sells for upwards of a couple hundred dollars. A couple of local bee keepers found on a local business directory all raised their hands when asked if they wanted to come and re-home this crazy bunch of pointy butt buzzers. It soon became a race to see who could get to the bees first to reap the sweet benefits of a perpetual honey making machine.
