LINCOLN, Neb. -- A Nebraska bee supplier says millions of honeybees headed for Nebraska and other states have died during a Wyoming snowstorm. Jane and Warren Nelson own Valhalla Bee Farm in Lincoln, and she says they were notified about the problem Thursday morning. Jane Nelson said that a semitrailer was hauling the more than 16 million bees from a Northern California supplier. The California company hopes to replace the shipment within a few days. Jane Nelson says many of her customers are hobbyists, describing them as "people who want to have a little bit of honey for themselves or promote good pollination in their gardens."
