Wow I remember this thread with a surprising clarity.

The lengths and depths that our society has gone to in the name of cheaper food is tragic and will be studied centuries from now.

It was chemicals. No way anybody saw that one coming.

It was pesticides that made them susceptible to parasites.

A chemical product sprayed all over plants to kill off insects is man made? You don't say. Point I was making was it's not the pesticide that is killing them, it's the parasites. The pesticide is making them vulnerable to the parasite. I'm not going to rag on all pesticides because they have saved millions of (human) lives and because the last time I purchased an organic salad I munched down on a living beetle and saw his friends looking back at me after I stopped retching. Yet the impact of the bees dying off could be catastrophic so perhaps better regulation or what not.

But I dunno, I'd like to think I could get by with my looks and not my thoughts so don't mind me.

The birds and the bees they are wise to the lies.
So they took to the trees and took to the skies.
On top of the chain and safe from the rain.
Whatcha' know about the ways of the underside?

Is it true that there were no Bees in the New World until colonists brought them over from Europe?

I thought I read that somewheres like this one time, for reals.

If that is true then they are not native to the America's and it was Man who populated them here.

Can anyone back me up on that?
