Storm kills bees headed to Nebraska

Apr 19, 2013 The Associated Press

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."
