International Honey Market Report for the American Honey Producers Association January 5, 2012 Ron Phipps CPNA International, Ltd. The international honey market, as much as if not more than ever before, is under the influence of global weather patterns, bee health problems and the global financial conditions of stress and debt. Global honey production in 2011 was most likely reduced due to an unprecedented year of natural disasters alternating between floods and drought, cold and untimely rains. The number of natural disasters in the US was unusually high and the economic losses were substantial. As a result, the US crop is estimated at the year just ended to have declined to approximately 150-160,000,000 pounds, one of the lowest crops in recorded history of honey production. Production in 2010 was 176,000,000 pounds, according to the USDA NASS report, and honey prices reached a record high of $1.60/lb. Domestic sales of U.S. honey in 2011 were down 7% from 2010.

it might be the increase of radiation in the air that's making them sick

Instead of nuking them from orbit with poison spray (as I do to hornets) I called a beekeeper and he came and captured them and took them away safely.
The beekeeper I ended up having come and get them wasn't the first keeper I reached, the first one I called had just got a large swarm the day previous and had no more room.
