"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I read a national post from last summer and came across an article on the decline in the bumblebee population. The researcher searches dozens of previously known sights in Ontario looking for the rusty patched bumblebee. She found one bee in 2005 and another in 2009. She kept them and currently they reside permanently in a collection for the dead in the lab.
In our area the western bumblebee (bombus occidentalis) is difficult to be found. My guess is their all in the lab.
