The good of society, as a whole, supersedes one's personal rights in some cases. For example, my right to yell "FIRE!" in a crowded theater has
been superseded by the public right to safety. Just because I have the right to free speech does not mean that I can use that right on a whim. The
needs of the society supersede my own in this case.
As far as Killer Bees go, well, it should be obvious that Killer Bees are a safety issue that can affect society as a whole. In this case, it is
important that the African Bees don't establish hives and integrate themselves into the local environments. To that end, it might be quite
acceptable for environmental inspectors to enter private property to identify the African Bee Hives.
