bees dying out
Aren't those the yellow things that sting? And who wants to eat fruit and vegetables anyway. This has to be a win all around.

"Many of these bees are transported across several states to perform pollinations in orchards and farms around the country."
Maybe bees aren't supposed to be moved all the time. Maybe part of their good sense of direction has to do with familiarity with their habitat, and constantly moving messes them up, just as it does when we move to a new area, except we can ask directions, and they can't.

Was there an unusally high level of bee moving this past autumn in 24 states in the eastern US?

Bees have been bussed around for decades. That by itself can't explain it. And as mentioned, they are not native. They are immigrants anyway and have come to accept the American iterrant lifestyle over generations.
No, there is something afluke this year. Hopefully it's only a one-year buzz off.
