I have heard about massive honey bee disappearance or die off from C2C and remember seeing a documentary about this almost a year ago. Seems the
conclusion was multiple contributing factors like mites, viruses and fungi-more specifically a total failure of the bees immune system as some
individual bees tested had multiple problems/diseases. Cell phone towers and EM fields were talked about as a possible cause but it seems it was
dismissed back then. The problem has gotten so bad that I don't think it can easily be dismissed anymore.
I have heard about bee keepers here on the west coast (Oregon, California) loosing almost all of there bees and they are now forced to import bees for
the first time. I think some effort needs to be done to track where the bees are going if that's not already being done. Are they all flying off in
random directions or are they following some guy playing a flute? Lets start making a bunch of bee cams, and then maybe we can watch the big bumbles
chase dgtempe around the yard.
Something to keep in mind about wild hives is that they have the ability to move away from problem areas, if there are any, and domestic hives are
placed in locations where they are needed for crop pollination and then they all fly away or die. Are these locations problem areas? One more thing,
if honey bees are responsible for 80% of all insect pollination then what's the percentage for edible food bearing plants? A chain reaction of this
sort will most definitely be very bad regardless what Einstein has ever said.
