The process of moving hives is very common both here and abroad (although the USA has taken it to a completely different level). As much as I may poke a stick at Vegans they may have a bit of a point in this area as hives have been known to suffer from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) which may be aggravated by this activity. I can just see it now. Bees flying along 'buzzing' to each other, "The humans aren't eating the fruit we are pollinating. That'll learn the farmers!" And how would the Vegans know? I can't imagine asking the 17 year old shop attendant whether he/she is aware if the produce has been propagated by 'enslaved' or 'free' bees would garner any useful information?
