Default A Couple of Points about "science"...

There is an urban myth - PERPETRATED AND PROPAGATED BY "SCIENTISTS" - that the honey bee (Apis mellifera) population is "crashing" in the US AND that we humans are all gonna die if they do. BULLONEY!

Have a read: https://www.facebook.com/notes/kaz-v...1447302312854/

What you will find is:
1) Honey bee populations undergo periodic 'crashes'. Just like MANY other species.
2) Honey bees are NOT NATIVE TO NORTH AMERICA. They're not "American". They are an "invasive species". (I try not to get too worried about this as "cows" are an "invasive species too.)
3) Many, MANY plants that humans eat are SELF-pollinating, or are pollinated by insects other than bees. Honey bees are NOT the primary pollinators for ANY plant native to NA because the honey bee is not native to NA.

"It" all sounds "good" when presented by a "scientist". You really have to question ALL scientific claims. Furthermore, the more adamant a given group of "scientists" are about their claims, the more closely you should examine them.

PS - By the way, the male mosquito is THE primary pollinator in the arctic.
