Hawaiian Bees are Missing Too

Regarding my post yesterday on our neighborhood bees, I just spoke with my neighbor and got an update.   Although the beehive in their yard is still buzzing away (behaving strangely, though, he said they are circling in unusual ways for some reason), they have 60 other hives up north on the island, and are confused as to why 20 of them are suddenly gone, just in the past couple of months.  Nothing’s left, he said, no queen, nothing; just the cockroaches.  He didn’t actually realize it was happening all over the world and I think he was a little stunned.  He promises to talk to other island beekeepers to see if it’s happening to anyone else. 

Scary.
