hi all thanks for sending your post on bees , up to now its a bit hit and miss where some bees are thriving and some are not , its seems to be the rural area that are seeing  the change in the bee population ,  lots of experts are blaming it on pesticides , and some are saying because of the two last summers being bad , i also recall last summer is not seeing many dragon flies , and daddy long leg to when the summers were good , could that be a reason ?

hi i thought when they were doing the market up after the fire it would never be the same again ,but when it opened again ,i was delighted to see it , it is set out much better and in time it will retain the old character of the market that once was so my vote for it being better then before the fire

HI   whats happening to the bees  we have flowers out in the garden one time they would be swarming with bees but just the odd one or two the srangest thing happen the other week when a bumble bee flew in the house it was falling over and looked drunk , since then when i have been out and about i have noticed it a few times and my daughter saw at least five bumble bees dead on the way to work the other week , i have started to take more interest in them since i  saw a documentry on tv last week , its a bit scarry what could happen if there were no bees , i know a lot have got this bug but it seems to be world wide apart from australia which are exporting bees , so i know people on this board live far and wide ,so could you please let us know how the bee count in your area is thank you  regards greeny ???
