What’s killing bees? Young and old yearn to know

Deep within the fertile Almaden Valley, Kenneth McKenzie walked with a beehive in his hand. He wasn’t nervous about getting stung. The hive — and the bees within it — was no longer alive.

Rather than discarding it, McKenzie, president of the Santa Clara Valley Beekeeper’s Guild, on Jan. thirty brought the hive to Mountain View High School, where he, a group of ESL students and Roger Quinlan, a master beekeeper from Mont. pulled it apart and examined the dead bees under a microscope to see what might have killed them.

“We’re doing a beecropsy,” McKenzie said.

“It’s like death by a thousand cuts,” McKenzie said.
