Fear not, these insects apparently survived the Ice Ages without much trouble.

Albert Einstein said lose our bees see mass extinction within 4 years.
Exactly when and where did he say that? I've tried to find out, with no luck.
i have also tried to find said quote but nothing at all as ever been said
what i have found is if the die off keeps up that the bees will be extinct in around 100 years
ps i used google search
ETA: Are these mass die offs occurring in the african hybrid honey bees
just did a search and there is no mention of any die offs in the africanized honey bee

This is not good news at all.
I'm not anywhere near Oregon, so maybe someone up there can fill us in a little bit more. But where I am in VA. Bumble bees are the only bees I have seen at all this year. I have yet to see a single honey bee.
"We're aware of a pesticide application in the vicinity, but have not yet identified the active ingredient. We are in the process of interviewing parties that may have applied the pesticide," said Dale Mitchell with the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
Just speculation on my part, but I would not be surprised at all to learn a Monsanto product was involved here.edit on 21-6-2013 by watchitburn because: (no reason given)
