A chap in Swindon appears to have the answer to the major loss of bees.

I saw it on BBC news. Fingers crossed!

Do you mean that The Goliath Corp. has shown a spark of altruism and genetically produced a super bee at its headquarters in Swindon?

I would suspect Goliath is at the root of the bee loss problem, and any corrections that they would contribute would only be for their own benefit. Should the world benefit, it's just an oversight on their part.

Actually, whoever leaked the story to the press probably ought to be looking for a suitable bunker to hide in for a while.

The lasy bit tells the story - the cleaning bees become savage and so would you after the 90,000th mouthful of bee litter.

Do they get a spoonful of honey to help the ?? go down?
