I don't know a great deal about honeybees, but I have to say that, since I moved out here to farm country in west Texas, the bees out here appear to
be "retarded". I've never seen bees like these before. Because we're going through a drought, I used to fill up an old trough so they would have
something to drink, because I wanted them around to pollinate my flowers and garden.
I would find literally dozens of dead bees each day in that trough. So I put a few big rocks in , thinking that maybe the slant of the trough was
making it hard for them to reach the water. Still a bunch of drowned bees every day. I felt so bad that I let the trough go dry because the dead bee
carcasses were clogging up the water and making it nasty.
They come into the house and run around in circles next to the window and then die there. They just don't seem normal like the bees I was used to
seeing both in east Texas and in California. I had a pool in the DFW area for years, maybe I would find one dead bee in there once in a while. If
one got in the house, it was bound and determine to find it's way out.
These bees out here act like they're stupid and can barely perform their function. At least they're not aggressive, but I do know that they use GMO
cotton out in these fields and plenty of herbicides and pesticides, so perhaps there is damage to their DNA. Sad to see nature's workers act so
pathetic and unable to take care of themselves.
