"I'm looking deeply into [their] eyes to see what they reveal," said Droege. "I'm looking for species in potential trouble, gathering information on their status before they're designated an endangered species."

Without our bees we'll lose 60% of our food. Thanks Lone

The issue of disappearing bees has been going on for quite a few years already, and they are just now doing the first inventory? I hope the bees are not totally disappeared by the time they finish their inventory.

It is unacceptable that our government is not banning the chemicals that are killing the bees. Also GMO plants should be banned as they too are killing the bees. I believe it is another case of our government protecting the chemical companies. I believe these chemicals are also causing many heath problems for humans and animals.

Bees are important for pollination and should be preserved.

If androids dream of electric sheep; do nano bees dream of electro magnetic clusters? That may be what it takes if the natural bees disappear.

There is always still hope! This year, I have noticed a huge increase in what I thought were bumble bees, but turns out they are Orchard Mason Bees and obviously the descendants of the ones I bought and turned out 3 years ago and thought they'd all died off.
