We only have bumblebees pollinating our plants anymore. It used to be mostly honeybees along with other bees doing the pollinating. The loss of honeybees is a very dire, disturbing sign of what the future could bring.
The bees are like the canaries in the mines. For those who don’t know … the miners used to take canary birds in gages into the coal mine so that they had a warning when the methane gases got too high. The canaries would die before the miners and give the miners warning to get out immediately.
