This stings: Winter death rate for America's bees jumps

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/11/2016 - 00:54

FILE - In this April 20, 2015 file photo, honeybees gather at the entrance to their new hive on the lawn of the Governor's mansion, at the Capitol In Olympia, Wash. After a couple years when American honey bee deaths in winter decreased, colony loss went back up last winter, probably because of tiny mites, according to a new federal survey released Tuesday, May 10, 2016. And year-to-year losses were even worse. The annual survey of beekeepers showed the winter colony loss rate was 28 percent, up from 22 percent. That’s about average over the past decade but higher than the 17 percent that beekeepers call acceptable. But it is still lower than peak winter loss rates of 36 and 32 percent nine and ten years ago. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — After two years of improvement, America's honeybees had another tough and deadly winter, probably because of mites, according to a new federal survey released Tuesday.
