I just got a phone call from my friend Wendy Adams. She was part of the rescue team when a truck transporting millions of bees overturned in a bad accident on I-75 in Georgia.

I hope this is not improper to post here, but Wendy has asked me to spread the word that they are needing help - either beekeepers to donate equipment or marine grade plywood or donations of money to make at least covers for the bee boxes so the rescued bees can be overwintered safely. They have set up a fund raiser - you can Tree-mail me for the info if you want to help spread the word.

The bees thank you.

Thank you for posting the request Greene. Does your friend have a FB page where people can get more information about the situation?

Thank you, @Mindy03 for helping to spread the word. The bees have no voice of their own.

Wendy Adams' Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wendypeaceyalladams

Look for the link to:
Rossman Apiaries as they have graciously offered to accept donations for equipment and supplies needed for re-homing efforts.
Please mention 'Be at Peace Rescue Fund' if you make a donation, thank you. (Rossman Apiaries' phone contact is on the Wendy's Facebook page.)
