Many important bumblebee species are in serious decline, not only in North America but in Europe as well. The British Isles bumblebee populations are crashing - those that are left. Franklin's bumblebee, here in the west, is almost certainly extinct, with more species almost certain to follow. I myself haven't seen many bumblebees at all lately. I think one or two this summer. When I was a child, they were all over the place.
The tanking of our honeybee industry will actually help - is helping - native bee populations to rebound a bit. But that alone isn't enough. All kinds of pollinators are in big trouble around the world, for a host of reasons. This isn't exactly happy news, of course.
