honey bees

my first blog

There is a scary thing happening in the world of honey bees: Hive collapse disorder. The honey bees are disappearing and there is no full understanding why this is happening. Before you think this is a crazy “Save the Bees” blog, think that every 3rd bite of food you take is due to bee pollination. That includes those who eat exclusively at McDonalds. There are as many theories about why this is happening as there are bees, but the impact is enormous: bees contribute approximately 14 billion dollars worth of edible food to our economy.

The purpose of this blog is to learn more about honey bees and find out what I can do to stop this disaster.
