I must differ when you say that the bee was evolved 14 million years ago and say instead that the earth was CREATED about 6 to 10 thousand years ago and that the bee was CREATED by GOD at the same time.

is the non native honey be a threat to native bees or is it a more benign invasive?

Noah, only someone blind will believe the earth was created several thousand years ago. The bible's main purpose is to give us a guide to live a life for God. When prophets were being given the word of God, do you think they would have had any understanding of true science. Of coarse God does as he created the law's of physics. Please don't take Genesis literal.

Noah, if that is his real name, speaks from ignorance.  
He and people like him reject the scientific method in favor  
of a collection of faerie stories in a book compiled from many,  
many cultures' wisdom literature. That's why the story of  
Noah's Flood sounds strikingly similar to the Gilgmesh Epic  
of the ancient Sumerians: the writers of the Bible borrowed  
It from the Sumerians.  
 
My question for Noah is: Which is it, pal? 6,000 years?  
10,000? That's a pretty wide margin of error you're  
claiming.  
 
This from the same guy who believes that Charleton  
Heston throwed down his walkin' stick and it become  
a BIG ol' SNAKE.

Dear Noah, You are right. The earth was created only a few thousand years ago but as a joke God made lots of fossils and sprinkled them around. That gives him carte blanche to walk all over us and burn us in hell when we reject the truth made so manifest in his great book the Bible. What a jokester the big guy is. Gotta love him.

Is there anything which plants the ancient bees pollinated? What effect did the vanishing of bees have on the flora? Did the ice age weather change cause the bees to decline which caused their pollinees to decline? Or did the ice age weather cause certain plants to decline which caused their associated bees to decline? Or did the ice age weare cause any number of plants and bees to individually decline due to the cold?

Lisa,  
According to Robbin Thorp, distinguished professor of entomology at UC Davis: "Ancestral honey bee reached North America 14 million years ago" but we don't know "how long it may have persisted, what its roles were in relation to the bee and plant communities that existed at the time and what happened to it. Perhaps future plant and bee fossils will provide cues to help answer these interesting questions."
