Adam you STOLE them bees
Article from The Southern Evening Echo-BEE RUSTLERS
Hampshire bee-keepers are being stung by professional "bee rustlers" who are stealing hives to sell on the black market.
Theives have targeted FOUR farms across the county in the last month as a national shortage of honeybees drives up their value.
The bee community is abuzz with who might be behind the crime wave with some pointing the finger at fellow keepers. In the most recent heist six hives worth Ã‚Â£1,800 were stolen from a commercial farm at Micheldever, north of Winchester. Hampshire police are investigating.
I can just imagine Adam in his best western get-up, out rounding up and lassoing bees with a tiny rope
