Is this deferent than a few years ago?
Are people finding honey, bees, queen sales down? Pollination contracts being dropped? Etc.?
dosent have to be 2. i think most throw in the towel after the first one. i cant say why- maybe the economy, maybe more trouble to care for than they thought(if you remember when, its a pretty steep learning curve). some seem completely surprised they have to do ANYTHING to keep'em alive(i suspect these have only knowledge gained from OLD books), but of the sellers i find, most only had bees 1 season.Due to the economy or to dead bees two or three springs in a row?
