Thanks for this most interesting morning read. Too bad this paragraph is buried 3/4 of the way down ,eh? “It is absolutely not a good thing for native pollinators,” said Eliza Grames, an entomologist at Binghamton University, who noted that domesticated honeybees are a threat to North America’s 4,000 native bee species, about 40 percent of which are vulnerable to extinction.

At least they got there in the end. While I was reading it, I was wondering whether they would mention the effects on native pollinators at all.
