    Unless they are "Aggressive" bees, why capture them?

    Why Eliminate them? Utah has aggressive winters with deep snows. This seems like another huge waste of money.

    I thought it was a joke when they said they were going to try and capture them or kill them. Waste of money alright. I say, "Fly little bees be free to pollinate any plant you want"!

    "KTVX-TV reports that the driver of the semi and a passenger were transported to a local hospital due to injuries caused by the bees"

    If some pillock overturned a truck I was riding in, I'd be seriously considering injuring them, too!

    Go the Bees!!!!!!
