Thanks for the link, GG. If there comes a time when honeybees no longer exist, there will be world-wide starvation! Two thirds of the food we eat depends upon honeybees for pollination, either directly, or indirectly.

I grow Jujube which are pollinated by Wasps and Sugar Ants. It doesnt require fertilizer or pesticides and can live in very harsh environments. I cant wait until they f**k it up too.
