I live in Scotland and am very concerned about the loss of Bees in our area. My Husband and I have seen many dead Bumblebees, he observed about 12 in one day on a grassy bank just down from our house. All of these were of the White-tailed variety. On a more positive note we have seen other varieties thriving in our fruit trees in the garden. I hope that the cause of the decline in Bee populations can be determined and a solution found soon.
