Article: U.S. Honey Bee Population Decreases Again

Another disturbing and mysterious decline in U.S. honeybee colonies is reported this winter:

“The reports that I have gotten from beekeepers is that about 30% of the healthy colonies that have gone to California - for this 2010 almond pollination to fulfill pollination contracts - have died in two or three weeks” - Jerry Hayes, Asst. Chief,
Apiary Inspection, Florida Dept. of Agriculture
