I have had up to three bee hives for 5 years in my backyard. I got them because I have 15 fruit trees and like honey. My first hive had been very strong and had swarmed 5 times and I was able to catch 2 of the swarms and that gave me 3 very strong hives giving me lots of honey. I and all the neighbors loved all the fruits and vegetables. Then last fall two hives went to zero, zip, nothing, no bees inside. Then the strong original hive swarmed two more times and they populated the two dead hives on their own. They lasted about two months. Then all three went to zero. Today I went to HomeDepot, Lowe's and OSH here in Folsom today to see what effect my lost hives might have. I have worked at both Home Depot and Lowe's and at this time of spring the thousands of flowering plants at the both stores have in the past years have been covered with (my) bees. After four hours of looking todayI found 4 FOUR bees at Lowe's and 3 THREE bees at Home Depot, none at OSH and none at Target. I have lost a lot but this CCD caused by IAPV will make the killer bee thing look like childs play.
