There is no substantive evidence that Einstein ever made a remark of this type about bees. Alice Calaprice, the editor of the important collection “The Ultimate Quotable Einstein”, placed the saying in the “Probably Not by Einstein” section of her reference.

So far I have not seen one Bumblebee in my garden this year. I have seen two Honeybees crawling on the concrete. They would not fly away when I prodded them.
BTW! Climate change is a hoax and has absolutely nothing to do with the die-off. Our planet goes through these cycles of hot and cold routinely. It's due to the Solar Cycle and has been this way since the dawn of time. The vanishing bees are a result of big industry (MONSANTO) dumping it's chemicals on us.
The info is out there..............due-diligence!

Is this more of an american thing as you have the worst saturation of monsanto and its ilk?
Here in the UK i have not really noticed a decline - the usual colony of white bottom bumbles are under my shed, the buddleia and lavender are covered in a variety of bees every day as is the clover growing in the lawn.
I am aware of this problem and have been watching for this decline since i first heard of it years ago - probably on here actually - i think i even posted a pic of a flowering shrub on another thread a few years ago which was covered in a variety of bees and butterflies) -I know that was years ago because i haven't worked there for over 2 years)
So I think it would be interesting to map where the bee losses are across the world and cross reference with big agri/monsanto types.
