Reason why bees are in trouble:

- ... America’s reliance on industrial agriculture methods,
especially those used by the almond industry, which demands a large-
scale mechanization of one of nature’s most delicate natural
processes.

Industrialization and THE GRAPE OF W.:

- The heavy industrialization of American farming has enabled high-
profile, wealthy landowners to extract greater profits from the land.
These powerful landowners do not need to treat laborers well if they
can opt to have efficient tractors plow the acres under their control.
Along with industrialization, the creation of high-powered machines has
enabled corporate interests to move laborers off the land and render
them irrelevant.

  Furthermore, industrialization has led to a farming and economic
process that involves both vertical integration and horizontal
integration. (Vertical integration occurs when the supply chain of a
company is also owned by that company -- for example, the peach cannery
also owns the farm where the peaches come from. Horizontal integration
occurs when a company expands across an entire industry, acquiring
several individual entities in a field of work. For example, this
occurs when an especially powerful farmer is able to push fellow
farmers out of business.) When both of these processes occur
simultaneously, monopolies are able to grow and become very powerful.
