    to substantiate your claims that feral bee decline predates neonics.

    Africanized bees have little to do with declining bee colonies. They are limited to warmer climates, so far. And introduction of managed bee colonies dates back to far before the introduction of neonics, and is certainly not a recent development. I was contracting bees for almond pollination decades before the current problem. And my father did the same before I was even born. Do you know nothing of beekeeping history? Managed bee colonies goes back centuries.

    The massive die-offs began in the mid 2000s. What do Africanized bees, or managed bee colonies, which predate the recent die off for decades, have to do with the problem?
