The bees with which most Americans are familiar – the ones which pollinate crops on the mainland and make honey – are doing just fine, according to the Washington Post. Data released by the USDA this year indicates there were 2.66 million commercial honey-producing bee colonies in the U.S. That’s down slightly from the 2.74 million colonies in 2014, but is still significantly higher than it was in 2006, when colony collapse disorder was first documented.
