60 percent of bees lost over winter in Va

Sharing is Caring!

In Virginia, the Department of Agriculture found that there was a loss of nearly 60 percent of honeybees over the 2017-2018 winter season.

READ  Rasmussen is pretty fair. They're the organization that had Trump's approval #s at over 50 percent for much of last year.

“The winter losses were 59.5 percent,” said Keith Tignor, State Apiarist.

This is the highest rate since 2000, which was when the state began monitoring bee winter losses.
