I posted in the bee forum but want to do it here as well. A couple in Sioux City, Iowa had a bee farm. Vandals destroyed everything, about 500,000 bees killed.
The couple is of course so devastated and said this has done them in since the damages are 50-60,000 dollars. I saw the story on the news the other night. I emailed the tv news station and suggested they get in touch with the bee farm owners to suggest a Go Fund Me page, then broadcast the fund on the news, maybe they could get up and running again, bees are precious and I think people would donate. If you do a google search you can read more about it.

No insurance or cameras?? That's crazy!

They have already exceeded their goal of $24,000. Thus far, they have raised over $36,000. Plus their local beekeepers' association will be there to assist. We belong to a beekeepers' association here and it's like a big family.

Edited to add:
They accomplished this in about 3 days. Like I said; beekeepers stick together.

like Greene said
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

They said bees are not insured.
