|The deal with honey bees leaving their hives is this:
The problem is called Colony Collapse Disorder. The general thinking now is that a buildup of toxins from certain types of pesticides in the beeswax and pollen over a long period of time is causing the bees to lose their homing ability and they fly off and die. Beekeepers who move their hives with the pollination seasons seem to be the most vulnerable. Many of the bigger apiarys have lost 65-80% of their bees.
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
