Re: $20 Billion Declining bee populations may lead to significant agricultural losses
Can't answer that Jim, doubt anyone can. Much as beekeepers could benefit in a bidding war if there ever is one.
What I can say, is I have been seeing threads like this every year, since I have been reading Beesource. It's kind of implied that in 3 years bees will be extinct, etc.... One this year said THIS was going to be the final year for bees.
I think the commercial beeks got too many smarts for that to happen.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
