Tens of thousands of dead bees and other insects were found in a Target parking lot in Oregon earlier this week in what is being called one of the largest mass deaths of bumblebees in the western U.S., a local environmental organization says.

unlike the imported honeybee, the bumblebee is endemic to America here.
.
time to find out what other things also caused their deaths. since they have been foraging among chemical sprayed crops for decades. it has to be a new poison that was just created. one they have no immunity to yet. that or a mite that hopped over on something like a produce or other product that was created outside of the continent.
.
it might be needed to stop transporting bees to other parts of the land here.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3... Nests of social insects are usually inhabited by various mite species that feed on pollen, other micro-arthropods or are parasitic. Well-known negative effects of worldwide economic importance are caused by mites parasitizing honeybee colonies. Lately, attention has focused on the endoparasitic mite Locustacarus buchneri that has been found in commercial bumblebees. However, little is known of other mites associated with commercial bumblebee nests. Transportation of commercial bumblebee colonies with unwanted residents may introduce foreign mite species to new localities.
