I received this question in email, I've never had a reason to look into this so i thought I would post it to see if anyone else may have an answer. Here's the question:

I am looking to purchase liability insurance for my 5 ton truck. Can you recommend insurance companies that deal with transporting bees?

When I was hauling, I only carried bobtail insurance. The beekeeper may have had other ins., I don't know. Bees are livestock, so I see no reason to have anything other than your normal ins.

Are they looking for coverage specific to the bees in the event of an accident? I have a bee transportation mortality coverage available with the ability to include liability insurance coverages incase the bees escape after an accident. Let me know what you are looking for as I should be able to help you out.

My bees are covered under my farm policy exactly the same as any of my other livestock. I haven't heard of any specific bee policies as I think most companies see them as general livestock.
My agent prefers to cover bees as aposed to other kinds of livestock since they come in a box and as long as you strap them down right they can't really cause to much trouble without some help.
