Hive Theft Alert!
Last night (1/16/17), 482 hives were stolen from a bee yard in Sutter County. All the equipment (including pallets) is brand new and has no brand numbers. The hives are double-deep 8 framers with grey cedar lids on 4-way pallets. Pallets are an odd size: 28.5 x 46". Please contact the CSBA (via FB message, website, or [mailto:email@example.com] with any tips.
