Good news/ bad news about bees:

The good news is that only one quarter of the US honeybee population died last winter, according to an annual survey. How is that good news you ask? The prior season saw the death of over 30% of our precious bees… The bad news is the same: Beekeepers say that these losses are higher than sustainable. In other words, even this “lesser” death rate can quickly affect our food supply. The fact is that over three quarters of the world’s flowering plants rely on pollinators, such as bees, to reproduce. This means that our wonderful bees actually help produce one-third of our food. A very recent Harvard study found that two popular neonicotinoid insecticides are likely causing Colony Collapse Disorder by killing off honeybees. Of course, Big Chemical Companies like Bayer, Monsanto and DuPont are spinning different tunes and sewing Big Bucks in the political realm to safeguard their profits. Does Big Chemical even care about health and human survival?

 I don't think we could make it without bees!
