Rapture Of The Bees

There have been news reports over the last several months considering the mysterious disappearance of bees. The link above is to a NY Times story regarding die-offs in the past. Apparently, these die-offs are not unprecedented.

I have another theory. HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY had it wrong…it is not the mice who were the secret masters of Earth’s destiny. It was the bees. They are departing now right before the Vogons demolish Earth to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. No doubt, someone will find a message from the bees: “So long, and thanks for all the pollen.”
