Create a honeybee hive policy that does not kill the hives

DWP workers are given a bee hat and jumper and 15 minutes to dispose of a hive. They have no special training and so use pesticides to kill the entire comb and queen. Hives often nest in in-ground water gauges as it is safe and damp.
Last year we lost 33% of our honeybees in the US and almsot lost the entire 2012 Almond crop in CA. That is valued at $4 billion dollars. Every hive is a life savor for our economy and our food supply. We need the Los Angeles DWP to come up with a better solution to killing these hives.
