Why “Bee” Concerned?
1 out of 3 bites of food you eat is thanks to pollination by honey bees…but bees are under threat!
Since the initial detection of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) in 2006, honey beekeepers have been losing roughly 30% of their hives annually. Although CCD is not fully understood, it appears to be a destructive synergism of multiple drivers of collapse. These include but are not limited to pesticides, parasitic mites, and increased viral levels.
