Where Have All the Bees Gone?

Record #:
The state's wild honeybees have been all but wiped out. Trachea and varroa mites, which appeared in the 1990s, in addition to pesticide use, have devastated the wild bee and over 50,000 managed bee colonies. Such loses affect pollination, which in turn affects fruit and plant growth.
