Bee disappearance solved! It was ROBOTS! And WASPS!
Amy is an amazing artist and skepchick who writes to me with hot tips every now and again. The other day she sent me the following, which appeared in a Myspace bulletin. I’m hoping we can get Bug_Girl to offer her expertise on the subject.

We Ask the Bees by Eileen Hetherington
The following is a transcript of a channeling on April 26, 2007. The questioner is asking the bees why they seem to be disappearing. An edited version of this channeling will appear in the next issue of Sedona Journal of Emergence.
Q. What is going on with the bees?
A. Of the entities you call bees, carries joy. What is necessary to sustain the life of the bees is recognition of their role and appreciation of their work and the necessary factors to support their life. Also the bees are in trauma due to the mistreatment of their species. They protest they are being captured and made to work for humans to produce what humans desire rather than their natural state of being which is joyful and organized. When humans take over the bees they are attempting to organize that which is in perfection. And the bees are angry.
They also protest because there is a natural predator which has been released, and allowed to proliferate attacks on the joyful life of these bees. And this is a type of insect which stings and attacks called wasps. The bees will not remain where they are being mistreated in so many different ways. When they go to the plants to make their healing substances, the plants are covered in gooey chemicals. Manmade artificial chemicals which injure the bees spirit and body. They will not continue to serve man under such conditions. When man begins to recognize these injustices the bees may return.
Q. You say may?
A. The bees take their directive from the angelic portion of the Devic kingdom , and if they are so ordered they will return. People do not understand that without the bees ——-
A. I think they do know I am wondering if they will do it.
A. But they are thinking with their robot minds instead of their hearts.
Q. So the bees want to not be limited to our hives.
A. We will no longer allow ourselves to become slave labor with incorrect methods, because the product of our labors is denatured and contaminated. We will not permit this. And there are chemicals on the plants. And we are controlled in large hives to produce the way man desires and we do not want this.
Q. And if man were to not make hives and control populations of bees you would allow the sharing of the product? And remove the chemicals.?
A. Those of you who support organic, natural and gentle methods will be allowed visits from the bees. For those who are without soul in their methods, we will remove ourselves. Remember, we are a race too. We have our desires our joys, we are not a machine to be used at the discrimination of humans.
Q. What can we do to help with the wasp situation.?
A. We will not speak of this as we are using this means of eradication of our race so that we can remove our energies to a place which can benefit from what we have to offer.
Q. You say a place meaning—-
A. Another inhabited planetary sphere.
Q. That’s very plain.
Q. And if we change our ways and respect the bees and allow them to be free and respected, will the bees return.?
A. The chemicals must be eliminated.
Q. – What particular chemicals.?
A. Petroleum based. Those chemicals which kill other beings. Also in our travels we have found plant forms that are not as the Creator intended. They have been altered and made to suit the whims of the stupid humans. The DNA material has been altered and is detrimental to our bodies. We cannot reproduce properly when consuming material from these plant forms. How can you people not see this!
Q. We have been ignorant but we can change
A. We are not convinced of this.!
Q. I understand.
A. You must appeal to the angelic rulers of our kingdom; the Devic forces who control the comings and goings of various species on this planet. And we must have strong assurance that immediate changes are forthcoming.
Q. I am very sorry for what we have done.
A. Thank you human, we take leave of this being.
Q. I will try and get this to effective places.
Follow-up extra credit essay questions:
1.) Are you thinking with your robot mind, or with your robot heart?
2.) What do we do about the WASP situation?
3.) If those who support “organic, natural and gentle methods” get visited by hoards of bees, why are they still paying more at the grocery store?
4.) Should humanity engage in peace negotiations with the Devic forces, or should America unilaterally invade the bee kingdom with a can of RAID?
Oooh! Communicating with a hive mind. That's seriously impressive, I seem to have read that's one of the hardest things to do… Of course that was in a work of fiction, but … still …
1) I'm thinking with the parts within my robot pants
2) Being from CT, I'm something of an expert on the WASP situation. Or, truthfully, more of a survivor of the WASPs. And no, I can give no advice other than to confront their passive aggression whenever it is presented.
3) "What, you think the bees come cheap? They're HIGH CLASS, PREMIUM pollinators, baby, they ain't cheap… "(From an interview with the Bee Pimp)
4) May the Devic forces be with you.
The woo, it burns!!
I love the shift in perspective from "they" to "we". Makes it feel more real.
Totally off-topic, but check out this car!!
Chanelling shmanelling: Dr Dolittle aka Eddie Murphy aka Rex Harrison was talking to the bees (& the birds etc) a long time ago. Jeez haven't you people seen the movie?
Wait a minute… so the bees are dying off because they don't like being captured and are angry? That's about the worst solution ever. Don't they know that they could join forces and raise a killer bee army and terrorize those damn bee-slave owners to end their oppression?
Oh, wait… I was using logic. Sorry for the slip-up, won't happen again ;)
As for the WASP situation couldn't the bees have little patience? I mean we're working on it. Jerry Fallwell is gone, Billy Graham is next and Bush's second term ends next year. These things take time you know!
Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
He he he he he he he he he he he he he he
That is just AMAZING.
BTW, there are two small groups of wasps that do prey on bees, but they are not considered major pests of honey bees. Most seem to take small bumble bees or solitary bees, although honeybees are grabbed occasionally.
More info here:
Note that the majority of solitary wasps prey on other species than bees.

Personally, I think the Psychic read our "so long and thanks for all the flowers" joke (after HHGH), and took it seriously.
expanded that comment into a longer post:
"Angels of the devic kingdom" turned out to be pretty damn funny when you look it up. :D
Bee Divas! Imagine the queen bee in a sequin dress with a line of back-up singers doing the Motown shuffle.
Oh. Hell. Yes.
