“I’ve never seen mass bee genocide like that, though,” Yost said of exterminators. “All you have to do is get some smoke out there and, trust me, I’m from the country I live in the country. You take some smoke out there and you smoke the hive, ’cause the queen’s in there somewhere, then you get a ShopVac and you suck ’em all in, take ’em outside the park and let ’em all go.”
Of course, a Diablo Stadium crowd that may have contained people with allergies to beestings was a consideration — but not to Yost.
“They’re just honey bees, man. There’s a decline in honey bees. It’s kinda sad to see it but they had to do what they had to do.”
