Fewer honeybees died this last winter than in previous winters. According to a recently released report, there was a 23.2% decline in bee populations over the winter, compared to 30.5% last year. 

“It’s better than some of the years we’ve suffered,” said Dennis vanEngelsdorp, a director of the partnership and an entomologist at the University of Maryland. Still, he noted, a 23 percent loss “is not a good number.” He continued, “We’ve gone from horrible to bad.”
