I've loads of bumble bees in my garden but no short-tempered honey bees.
A man down the road called in last week with honey for us. He's quite a few hives but no bumble bees.
Strange, isn't it? Maybe honey bees and bumble bees don't get on.

315 people view the topic i I would have thought more would have commented.
But do you know the story is not actually true.
Dr. Tang was irked at being misquoted on hand pollination in a recent documentary (though he speaks perfect English, the filmmakers asked him to speak in Chinese and then wrote in subtitles with slightly different information). He wished to inform me straight away: “Hand pollination in Sichuan is 100% an economic issue.”
