Media likes to panic but this IS something to worry about. Ha ent heard anything about it recently but bee keepers were recording massive & unexplained losses a year ago.
Only if you don't want a diet consisting of groal(sp). oats,wheat,corn, etc. I saw a pbs program where chinese farmers were hand pollinating asian pear trees it is so bad over there.

Maybe that's where the problem is originating from, for example, the emerald ash borer

True, and ironically China is the world's largest producer of Royal Jelly, which is a critical part of raising honeybee queens in commercial volumes, but the stuff is produced only by the honeybee and in incredibly small amounts. They also export the most honey (or what they claim is honey). Yet they have so few bees they are hand pollinating crops with paintbrushes.

Random fact to do with nothing except me: I enjoy having an Afro more and more each day.

For relaxation I juggle rabid ferrets with my feet. Silly, I know, but it's better than wolverines.

Random fact about me: if I could, I would rock the f***ing s**t out of an afro too. Sadly, my hair texture simply won't support one.
