This article about bumblebees' decline makes interesting reading. Elsewhere, articles expand on the theme but any way it's pitched it's bad news for bumbles :(.

Sorry, can't seem to make the link work :shrug:.

Still can't make the link work, but if you google "science mag: bumblebees" it goes straight to it.
It's the heat that's doing it but it's jolly cold today !!
