Time magazine recently featured the honeybees' struggle on their cover. It's nice to see the subject getting more and more attention.
Unfortunately, some of what's killing the bees has recently directly effected one of our members. HCBA Trustee, Larry Borysyk, recently sent me this photo of the front of his hive.
All the bees on the ground near the hive are dead. Larry thinks they may be victims of insecticide. If so, let's hope the effects on the hive are limited and they recover and gain strength to be ready to over-winter!
Thanks for sharing this with us, Larry!
