Re: lack of bees
In SW Virginia - There have been very few butterflies, and honey bees.
The Monarch Butterflies were frozen out in several "wintering" places,
the honey bees are suffering from mites in the hive. Several people who
have always provided as much honey as I have ever needed don't have any
this year - in fact they are out of the bee business. You're right -
anyone heard any predictions about what's going to happen here???
