As for the dissapearing bees, in school, we are trained to look for a bad thing that is there, and not trained to look for what is NOT there. Once you train yourself to look at the ratio of brood at last inspection to the number of bees currently present, you will find the bees that are not there.

They are there, they are just 2 dimensional..... err flat.
Yes you can see them in little black piles all over the yard. Skunks are particularly devastating to hives in the cold. The agitated bees come out and freeze. These are your winter bees, they arent being replaced. I took 15 skunks out of 1 yard this fall and didnt get them all.

Nice interview by the way.
