This is the first year that I have not seen a single Honey Bee out pollinating flowers.
I am sure there must be some, I hope.
All I see in my garden are yellowjackets, little buzzing insects, and bumblebees or some kind or another.
I like Honey Bees .... I hope they can bring them back.
Does anyone know if the disappearance of the Honey Bee is due to all the insecticide we use.

Not only letting new pesticides kill bees, we are now refusing to count the dead.

"On the heels of the EPA’s June approval of a bee-killing pesticide, the White House said it would stop collecting data on declining honey bee populations—potentially making it impossible to analyze the effects of the chemical and the administration’s other anti-science policies on the pollinators."

Numbers, facts, etc.. are fake need. So stop counting.
