25,000 bees dropped dead from European Linden Trees in Oregon.
It doesn't have to be fun to be fun.

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.

Keep your knife sharp and your skillet greasy.

Rachel Carson comes to mind.

Duh! You spray that crap to kill a tree, shrub or plant and you don't think it will kill/harm animals? That should be an IQ test question.

I was in a suburb of Seattle one time, fresh out the country and had no idea that municipalities sprayed chemicals when I came across the biggest patch of wild blackberries I had ever seen. I mean they were right in the middle of the city and smack dab along the sidewalk. They were huge berries too. I was in heaven! I did what any kid not from the city would do, I proceeded to eat the crap out of those berries. I was stopped by a concerned citizen that told me blackberries in the city were considered a nuisance and they were sprayed regularly with a "lot of weed killer" to get rid of them. I am glad I don't live in a city....

read somewhere the almond crop in California is in dire trouble because of a lack of bees for pollination. Back in late 1990's there was a big consolidation of bee businesses(my BIL lost his job as a result) and with so many hives being stored in a single location some easily transmitted fungus is killing the bees.

If you favor almond honey, better stock up soon.
