In a more civil world, behaviors could be changed so that ‘organic’ food sources could be sustained and population could decrease through changes in behaviors rather than through calamity- calamity for which you are right to say we are due. It is a shame that those most able to set courses for society choose to keep people divided and from working together to fix things that can be fixed. Thank you for the well said reply.@ Genome Project CCD was brought to my attention nearly a decade ago. There is hope. Unlike the oranges, the bee problem is more localized. In 2008, during a visit to Germany and on any given day there, I saw more honey bees in fifteen minutes than I’ve seen in the USA in any given 10 year period unless I was visiting a apiary or museum. I had not heard me9970’s report of spray for asian rust, but it would not surprise me.Thank you for kind comment. Life has been exceedingly interesting over the past few weeks, and the last two in particular. Boredom is truly underrated.Respectfully,C.
