I have noticed that the bees around the Bay Area seem to have partially
recovered.  I see about twice as many bees this year on the lavenders as
last, which is about half what I saw three years ago.  Perhaps the local
bees are recovering.  The wild swarm I was hoping to recover from a tree
this year collapsed: I found the hive filled with dead bees last month.

Ja that would be nice.  In the mean time caloric restriction can reduce your
risk to some extent.  It's all we have.
