They used a cat to push the hives and bees off the road in to the ditch to clean the hwy so it could be reopened to traffic.

I have been thinking about that. I-75 runs right through the middle of our area. At our next meeting of the Cherokee Beekeepers Assoc., I think I will bring up the topic to see if they have a plan. Because it could happen here and the CBA would be one of the first places law enforcement would probably call. Perhaps other associations with interstate or major US highways should consider this, too.

back during my migratory adventures there use to be a stretch of road up around Tulsa Oklahoma that invariable had at least one truck in the ditch every year when we ventured north to the Dakotas < quite typically the cause in this case was a very strong wind out of the west that would flip a trailer. the standing rule was any beekeeper who passed by was obliged to stop and assist however you could.

notice in the picture the condition of the gloves the two men are wearing.... which do you think is the commercial beekeeper?
