Poor little critters. They serve a purpose, even tho I hate them for sending one of their own on a suicide mission to visit my car front seat, allowing me to crush him and thus have a co-worker pull the stinger from my lily white ass…

Seriously, pesticides are used much to freely. It seems we develop these wonderful things, before we know what damage may occur down the line.

@skfinkel…with everything else going on, this latest development had escaped me…thank you very much for sharing it. The significance of the bee obliteration is much greater than the attention it has been getting, in my opinion.

Susan; I will pass this on to our bee-keeper relatives. (They have seven hives now. And WTF has a very good point, as usual.)
