Honeybee Communities Collapsing

I've been hearing about this on TV etc, but I read in detail about it only now. Scary situation:

Hahah. Funny etlamatey. Are they resident bees going to go to congress to press for laws against immigration of new bees?

I had heard this on NPR few weeks ago. Here is the recording of the program.
 
Oh boy!
