    Two children charged with killing half-a-million bees on Iowa farm

    Police have arrested two boys for vandalising a honey business and killing half a million bees at a farm in Iowa.
    The boys, aged 12 and 13, have been charged with knocking over 50 beehives at the Wild Hill Honey farm in Sioux City which caused half a million bees to freeze to death in late December.
    Wild Hill Honey owner Justin Engelhardt claimed the boys had caused $60,000 (£42,000) of damage in what he called a “completely senseless” act.
    He told local newspaper the Sioux City Journal: “They knocked over every single hive, killing all the bees. They wiped us out completely.”
