Sounds like another bad start for the bee's in USA almond pollination.

Recent BEE-L post.

All

I'm in a hotel in Oakdale tonight. Flew out to check reports of
widespread bee losses in CA, escalating rental fees, possible shortages. I'm also
taking samples - looking for two types of bee operations to inspect/sample:

Those with unusually high losses - assuming anything is left to see/sample,
AND just as importantly
Those with Great bees, no history of CCD.

Our analyses have provided leads to a very specific pathogen complex that
we are trying to verify.

I'll be here about a week, traveling up and down the state. I can be
reached at my [log in to unmask] (mailto:[log in to unmask]) e-mail, or my
cell 406-544-9007.

Thanks

Jerry

P.S. I need contact information - cell phone preferably - since everyone
is involved in a major push to get bees in to the almonds, hard to reach by
any means other than cell - which they might answer. Of course, if you
know where they go to breakfast about mid-morning, give me the address of the
diner.

Ever seen the line ads on the back of the ABJ for the almonds? Incredible.
