Bee Spill In Georgia Covers Highway In Honey
Bees! Millions of them! Freaking out yet? Do you like honey? Here’s a sweet story! A tractor-trailer carrying millions of the little stingers blew a tire and overturned on Interstate 75 near Atlanta this weekend, spilling honey all over the road according to the Huffington Post.
Local beekeepers and Monroe County, GA emergency management personnel swarmed the scene just like the bees themselves to move broken containers containing bee hives and honey combs to the median grass on the side of the road.
The clean-up closed two lanes of traffic and lasted several hours.Not only did they have to clean up the big mess, they had to do it with millions of angry bees around. One thing is for sure, it was a hard day. Crews sprayed water from hoses to disperse the bees and no injuries were reported.
