A friend sent this link to me on FB today. It's an article about honey bees evolving to pass on the worker bees good traits in order for the colony to survive even though worker bees are sterile.

here is a link of interest to beekeepers .... http://www.honeyflow.com/ ...I hope to add some of these to my hives if and when I ever move from here. No point in doing it now cuz the farmers keep planting their corn and soybean covered in the neonicatinoid pesticide powders which I firmly believe is killing the bees

Spent most of my time in the garden the rest of it I've wasted
