"While commercial beekeepers have been having trouble with their bees, here in Florida we've had more wild bees than ever before."
Besides... I've been hearing this "20% last year... 30% last year" BULLSHIT for at least 10 years. If it were even approximately true, the U.S. would be knee-deep in negative bees by now.
(Before anybody replies... yes, I know that 30% of 0.0001 is not negative. Just a slight exaggeration to make a point, okay?)
But on a more serious note: I can also add my "anecdotal evidence" that wild bees have been plentiful in this area. Last summer I had a hard time believing how many bees (and yes, I mean honeybees not any other variety) were all over the flowers.
I am as concerned about problems with bees as anybody... but BS doesn't help solve anything.
