Bee bonanza in California

Anecdotal reports” indicate that pollination rates for the Californian almond crop have increased from $40-50 per hive last year to $120 and $140 this year because of bee shortages. See earlier reports for the background.

Other reports suggest that bees are being transported from all over the USA to meet California's needs. What trouble could be brewing as a result of that?
