The Department of Agriculture just announced they’re suspending data collection for its annual Honey Bees Colonies report. The department cited costs as the reason behind the cuts, but haven’t said how much the agency was saving by discontinuing the survey. This is the third bee-related dataset to be suspended under the Trump administration. The Honey Bee Colonies report is a critical tool for understanding honeybee population declines. Researchers describe the dataset as valuable for beekeepers and farmers whose crops rely on honeybees to pollinate them. Bees help pollinate a third of the crops we eat.
