I'm scared of bees, although they are fascinating and at times brightly colored beauties....! I just love spring and the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees...

About 15 years I guess.

I did a thread about CCD (Colony Colapse Disorder) somewhere on here. The upshot was that I was blaming WiFi and then suggested checking the countries that had a lot of WiFi. Other than the western countries, Taiwan has 100% WiFi coverage. When I looked  at the Wiki page, Taiwan gets a mention!

I hate bee's because there was a nest outside my window just under the area where the roof goes over the side of the house. But they haven't came back to that spot because they don't usually use the same nest twice! So hopefully the little ********** will not fly into my room and zoom by my head while I'm sleeping or wake my girlfriend up screaming like last year!!! The worst time for them is when the weather gets colder though and they start dying out and searching for sugars, they get alot more adgitated and sting more people then. At that time of the year last year there was like 3bee's a day flying into my room so I had to shut the window :(   .. I might go wireless with my internet now! lol

That sounds more like wasps.

Bees store honey to survive the winter.
