After almost two decades of relentless colony collapse coverage, the new Census of Agriculture show that America’s honeybee population has rocketed to an all-time high.

The U.S. added almost a million bee colonies in the past five years. They’re now 3.8 million, the census shows. Since 2007, the first census after alarming bee die-offs began in 2006, the honeybee has been the fastest-growing livestock segment in the country!

And that doesn’t count feral honeybees, which may outnumber their captive cousins several times over.
