I was listening to Linda M. Howe on C2C last night (C2C is not an authoritative voice) somethin along the lines that the Almond growers had lobbied to get bees from Argentina brought in in coming seasons for the Almonds. Does anyone hauling in there and working with those growers know if this is true? Just from an initial look at this idea, if it is true, seems to be extremely unwise if for no other reason than to allow some new and exotic pathogens in. Is there any solid reason why bees from Argentina would fair better against your CCD than domestic and down-under stock has done?

I hope this is not how it is.
