Be nice to bees

It's ironic that one of the introduced species to this country now is needed back there because they are now extinct in their native land. The fact that we are talking about bumblebees just makes it even more interesting.

"A rare species of bumblebee that has become extinct in its English homeland has been clinging on in the South Island of New Zealand - and now the Brits want their bees back."

Bees are dying our all over the world. If we can do something/anything to help them - we should. We have has no native bumblebees or honeybees (which live in colonies) but there are several species of native bee that live in individual holes in clay banks.

Send the queens back and lets get the bees back on track.
