First let me say that I absolutely support the concept that we need to save our pollinators, of which honeybees are one species. In Australia we have lots of native bees and wasps (and flies!) that also pollinate, and these insects should also be considered in this discussion. We do not rely on introduced honeybees alone to pollinate crops and wild plants. This what I think you need to know about pollinators and how we can save the bees.
