The latest buzz … or lack of it

A local beekeeper group reports that 47 percent of its members’ hives died off over the winter, something largely blamed on a virus I’m dubbing Cobeed-18.

Alas, ours was one of the ones that didn’t make.

Uncertainties over the human Covid-19 outbreak, meanwhile, puts repopulating the hives in question. New colonies are trucked north from the Deep South, and who knows how long before things in that regard are back to normal.

Everything’s up in the air, except that some things aren’t.
