Give Bees A Chance

Colony Collapse Disorder

What is killing their buzz?

Without bees to pollinate many of our favorite fruits and vegetables, the United States could lose $15 billion worth of crops -- one out of every three bites of food we eat was pollinated by a honey bee.

Beekeepers first noticed the vanishing bees in 2006. Seemingly healthy bees were simply abandoning their hives en masse, never to return. Researchers call the mass disappearance Colony Collapse Disorder, and they estimate that nearly one-third of all the honey bee colonies in the country have disappeared.

1 out of every 3 bites we eat comes from the service of a honeybee!
