"This message is for all beekeepers having problems with their honeybee colonies collapsing failing to build up etc.
Tom Steeger EPA 703-305-5444 (email: email@example.com) would like to hear from you. He would to hear from as many beekeepers as he can. His comment to me was a few days ago if we don't hear from beekeepers and many of them we EPA can't began to fix the problem.
Send this to fellow beekeepers as well as encourage them to call. Don't put it off Do it today!!
If Tom doesn't answer leave him a message with your phone number and best time to contact you and which time zone you are in.
Tom will get back to you. He is concerned. I have known Tom for over 10 years and one of few people at EPA trying to help.
This message was sent to me this weekend for me to spread the word."
