A recent survey of U.S. beekeepers shows that 23 percent of American honeybee colonies died this past winter, largely because of parasites, pesticides, poor nutrition, disease, and unknown causes. An unseasonably cold winter coupled with climate change

I read it- it does not have much info on that page, although the site itself Does. Something important here in Texas is having water available, and a food source that is Uncontaminated, These 2 things are important everywhere, of course. Just having blooming plants is not enough, because they may be contaminated with imidacloprid.And THAT will spread to all the bees that touch that contaminated pollen. ......Plant seeds, and raise your own blooms without pesticides. OR buy plants from a guaranteed organic grower. ....(Time to shut up now :)

An interesting article. I live in the UK where we had been seeing a reducing number of bees over the past few years. This year the bees seem to be making a bit of a comeback, 2 of my neighbors have bumble bees that have established nests in their gardens and a local man has started keeping honey bees. We have planted our garden, as have many of our neighbors, with 'bee friendly' plants and flowers. Our garden is now full of bees, all going about their business busily pollinating our plants.

Man and bees have formed an informal symbiotic relationship. Granted humans get more out of this relationship than the bees. But, wild bees have to find a site that is suitable to build a hive. These are usually small hallows in trees. These fill quickly and the colony must swarm to move the surplus bees from the colony. These wild colonies are subject to predation by honey badgers, bears, rats and people. This destroys the colony. Humans in making hives for them, maximizes the conditions in the hive. The humans protect the colonies from predation and disease and provides forage and a new home for those colonies that need to swarm. There is no way that the bees loose in this arrangement.
