Missing Bumble Bees

I wish I were kidding when I write that Nationwide 25% of the domestic bees are missing.

"Managed honey bee colonies have collapsed at alarming rates, 25 percent nationwide, and scientists still have not fully discovered why. But the latest declines are part of a larger trend, with honey bee colonies down 50 percent in the past 50 years."

Two bills are making their way through our Federal Government to study the cause...
