Bee Colony Migration
I was reading a series of internet posts where someone argued that honey, unlike other animal products, was not cruel as the bees "consent" to being kept. If the bees were not being well kept and did not find their environment up to snuff, unlike other domesticated animals, they were free to leave.
Is this true? Will poorly kept bees go "Well, to heck with this" and the colony will take off for greener pastures?
