Bees in Maine Doing Fine!

This sounds like the right answer to me, and is some of the best news I’ve heard in a while:

A recent federal report has pinpointed some of the causes of rapid die-off of bee populations from colony collapse disorder, but Maine beekeepers say hives here are flourishing.

They credit healthy management by commercial beekeepers and the diversity of Maine’s agricultural base with helping to avoid the threats posed by the disorder in many other states.

“We’re in very good shape,” said Tony Jadczak, state apiarist for the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry. “We have good bees, good bloom. Now we just need some (good) weather.”
