It look's like Time is going to have an article about Bees in there next issue.    I'm not sure they sell it here in Denmark but i'm going to look around, or have someone i know in the USA send me a copy.   If anyone reads it first i would love to here what it says.

I read the article last night.  It is very well rounded.  Not at all one sided like I had expected it to be.   A couple of small mistakes like "varroa is microscopic an burrows into to cell".

What always baffles me is that they didn't get a knowledgeable person to read it and let them know that they misunderstood how it works.  How difficult would it be to find someone who understands well enough to catch such mistakes?  It is, after all, Time Magazine, not just some newspaper from a small town.

there are a lot of things that honeybees do not pollinate, but i can't think of anything that they exclusively pollinate.  some planting practices might have to change to attract other insects, but.....

and other pollinators would probably thrive without the added completion.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Our local news paper has done alot of stories on me over the last 20 years.  Some about bee's but most about my animal damage control business.  The reporter almost always printed something that wasn't completely correct until I started proofing before printing.  Most mistakes like this varroa one dont ever get questioned by someone without knowledge of the subject
