The bees were found along Highway 99 West Sunday afternoon. Many people driving through the area saw the dying insects and wondered if it’s another insecticide problem.
Last year, thousands of dead bumblebees were found dead in two shopping centers. Several hundred were found lining the streets and sidewalks in Hillsboro and just days before, more than 55,000 of dead or dying bumblebees were found in Wilsonville.
Two companies were eventually fined for insecticide spray that killed those bees.
