We know a lot of reasons that a lot of them died over the last few decades, but we keep importing new problems.  The best guess is that the current issues are some combination of imported pests, viruses and chemicals.

demekan.  Nice that you are beginning to post in our forum. You will find it a good place to spend some time.  Lots of great advice, stories of what people are doing with their bees, you will love it for sure.  Have a wonderful and greatest of days.  Cindi
