The Hillsborough County School Board voted Tuesday to sue two beekeepers after complaints from nearby Limona Elementary School. Principal Karen Pierson said bees belonging to Michael and Steve Grande have stung children and left corrosive dropping on cars at the school.

The brothers, who sell honey from their home on Telfair Road, say the board is trying to force them out of business. They blame wasps that nest under the school roof.
