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.
