Re: Bumblebee vs. Honey Bee
You collected some data with your experiment but you didn't collect the right data to arrive at your conclusion. You don't know if eliminating those bumble bees affected your honey production. All you know is that more honeybees foraged on Anise Hyssop then before. It could work out that if a honey bee went to another kind of flower they would have collected more nectar than what they did from the Anise Hyssop. In the past man has made some serious mistakes killing something they didn't like over something they did like. No beekeeper I know worries about bumble bees.
