Sounds like a stupid question I know but I am just wondering what you have noticed in your area or heard? In case you have missed the news reports, the short version is that many bee keepers report that the bee's are disappearing. Some have reported half of their hives just disappeared. They can't even find dead bees to autopsy they just abandon the hives and are not to be seen from. This problem is not limited to the US and is occurring overseas too. I have lots of Jasmine in full bloom right now and it is typically covered in bee's and I have not seen a single one this year.
