Tractor Trailer with Bee Hives

I was driving North on I-95 this weekend and I saw a tractor trailer loaded down with bees. I am guessing they were headed to the blue berry fields.

I was checking on a hive which has had a sugar candy board on top for most of the spring. The bees have not been very interested in it, and I planned on pulling it off soon as soon as the rain stops. When I checked on them, I found they had been storing the sugar candy in with some nectar they were bring back.
