Re: definition of "survivor bees"
Survival really is not subject to much interpretation. you can go ahead and make up a definition for yourself but it does not change the definition of survival it just means you like to play games with yourself. Survival means it is alive. I more accurate question is Survived what? Winter, beekeepers? A pesticide laden environment? a dearth? Migration and pollination? Diseases and parasites? Being robbed of massive amount of their honey stores? All the above? all the above simultaneously? If you are looking for that last one get a grip. And that is exactly what I believe the treatment free crowed thinks they can find. it does not exist and never has. Never will.
