Mason bees are native, so our normal weather changes around here are part of their normal lives. Honey bees get hit pretty hard, along with pesticides, varroa mites, etc,. That's why Glen Andresen was working on that project about honey bees that are adapted to the PNW. Has anyone heard anything about that project?

Over a week ago I had watched Portland news on a reported die-out of a bee hive project for children during the first ice storm in the mid December period. I am not sure if it was Glen's or what the cause of death were. In all probability I might say they suffocated from being covered with ice. Honey bees are vulnerable in the sense they don't hibernate and need to breathe.
