Most of the time, like perhaps most of us, my life seems to resist a strong embrace of the, "Oh shit, we're toast!" - sort of world view (I've got waaaay too many friends on FaceBook for this to really be real. I mean really, you know what I mean?)
All kidding aside, perhaps the most troubling observation -- having been on this patch of hand-cleared 'ohia forest for some 15 years now -- is the near complete absence of motherfucking honeybees (and I use the term quite literally). As the blossoms of spring...blossom, I swear I only see black flies and fruit flies crawling upon the flowers. THAT gets my attention, and would seem to portend something nearly unmentionable. I'm not sure what utility posting such a thing serves, and fucked feedback loops such as the gulf stream wonking out into melted ice-cubes in our planetary punch is troubling for sure, but what are others' observations regarding bees at their place? Also, does anyone have opinion about if those fruit fly traps will contribute to better fruit set on say, avocado and citrus? Mahalo.
