Report: The US honeybee population is still dying in record numbers

This article discusses how new data show the US honeybee population is still dying in record numbers. The numbers aren’t improving for bees in the US, and scientists still haven’t figured out what exactly is causing the problem.

Over the last year, American beekeepers reported losing about 41% of their honeybee colonies, a 3% increase in the loss recorded in the same period for 2017, according to new data released this week  by the University of Maryland, which works in conjunction with the Bee Informed Partnership.
