    It is still interesting that you don't see a problem with senseless killing...and that you even classify it as fun. Deviancy is always fascinating.

    That actually is not true. There are other pollinators in the world.

    I'm into bees and it does a disservice to our cause -- I'm starting My own apiary -- to spread this information.

    It would suck if the bees disappeared, but our agriculture would be set back only slightly.

    I hope whoever did this gets to spend a few hours locked in a room of angry hornets.

    A huge loss of income for the apiary. It IS a big deal.

    Please stop spreading this disinformation. Bees are useful and provide value to our lives and the world in general. We will NOT STARVE if the honey bee died off.

    We do, however; need to continue to propagate their numbers and manage them as we would any animal husbandry.

    Bees can pollinate in a week...what 200 thousand humans could never do.

    And what did the 'indians' have as alternatives pollinators to the 'euro' honeybee . --- Alternative to Honey Bees --- just a little bit of education eh .

    Indians lived for the most part, on the verge of starvation...the domestication of bees to serve our purpose while doing what bees do is one of the major advances in food production. You think it was a bad idea to import one of the major advances in food production to US shores.

    It is endlessly fascinating to watch someone who exhibits deviant behavior try to justify said behavior. My interest isn't in the bees, my interest is in the mindset of the sort of person who does this sort of thing...and especially one who believes it to be "fun".
