My wife and I just had a fun text exchange, where she informed me that 10000 bees took a family hostage in a car (this was how the local news put it) in NYC.

Here's a quick link: www.dnainfo.com...

She joking said, "I thought bees were going extinct, so where did all these show up from?"
I replied, "They're the resistance. The bees have had enough, and are taking action."

This quote comes from the article:



Several bee infestations have been reported this spring, with two other mammoth masses discovered this week alone, one on Manhattan's Bowery and another in the Westchester Square area of the Bronx.


So all kidding aside, and probably a lil TMI, I have mildly serious question for my fellow ATSers, do you think bees are making a come back? Were they ever in danger? I know I've seen alot of articles suggesting bees were a dying breed. But around the homefront, we've seen no decline in pollinators (bees, butterflies, what have you).

Kinda open ended, but just thought maybe some of you had some ideas on the matter or mind blowing information, you guys and gals usually do.

They went into hiding to adapt to the new conditions, they have completed their metamorphosis and are now ready to kick ass and take names. When nature attacks.........

I read an article last year that said California was seeing numbers increase too. Good news indeed, and that's coming from someone who is allergic to bees. Didn't see many for a few years, I was starting to really worry. Every animal is important to the ecosystem, but few are obvious for why we need them around as the bee.

That might not be far off the truth! The Africanized Bee is making big strides into North America, and attacks have been recorded all across the SouthWest, and Florida, and up into Oklahoma and Missouri.

They really have morphed into a stronger variety.

But, more to the OP, I think they were declining in number, but I don't think they were ever in danger or extinction.

Saw that on the news this morning, it was crazy!

Can you imagine all those bees on your car?

Well, we had better hope they are coming back. If the bees die off, things are even worse than we think.

This wikipedia chart shows pictures and tells you the characteristics of bees, wasps, and their nests. Bees are mostly furry, while the others are smooth. They all sting, but bumblebees die after one sting. The rest can continue to sting you.

We have a ton of yellow jackets at my house and they're really no good for much (from what I can tell).

Here is another article that gives a little more information on the types of "bees".

It's honey that are a one time sting. Not bumble.

we may need them, but I make sure I kill any that stray into my path, all this
"they won't sting you unless you freak out"

Nonsense, they just sting you, so I take them out
