Re: Beekeeping 50 Years From Now: Projections From Beekeeping Pros
New pests will be in the Americas. Troepilaelaps (sp?) will be a game changer, so will the Asian hornet or wasp. You know the ones that tear a hive apart in a matter of a few hours. Honey will hopefully take it's rightful place as a wholesome health food with greater emphasis being placed on it's medicinal properties. Generally speaking it will be tougher to keep bees. The ususal culprits will be the root cause. Access to good forage, weather, pests, pesticides. Prices for producers will be good to excellent.
Unlike others, thinking i could still be in my body come 50 years :)
