    Lose our bees...we all die. Folks don't seem to understand this.

    I have an alibi.

    I've got four caterpillars who will swear we were playing poker when this happened.

    Bees are great pollenators and every farmer and crop grower loves having bees. Many keep their own bees.

    We sure can't afford to lose the honey bee.

    Yeah. You can't get into it by clicking the intro. You have to go to the pages to actually get into it.

    That does not work for me either. 0 posts page 1, 1 post page 2 and 3 posts above my first one on page 3. Nothing else shows up. Strange.

    Who counts honey bees? Yeah, it's a problem in the U.S. apparently caused by an introduced mite that gets in their throats and kills them. Bee keepers medicate hives but the wild bees are on their own so far. I imagine the crazy left will find a way to blame it on "global warming".

    Way too many weed killers on store shelves....people are too lazy these days to weed their gardens and trim. You can get an electric weed trimmer for less than $100.00

    They are an introduced species, honey bees, there are many other species that are pollinators. The biggest threat to those others is Bayer Monsanto

    Because it is not true.

    There were thousands of pollinators prior to the introduction of honey bees into the American continent. They still exist.

    We need to do more to protect the bees as they provide a vital economic interest, but hyperbole isn't our friend.
