Disappearing Bees - Colony Collapse Disorder

Bees pollinate our plants worldwide.

Bees are responsible for the pollination of 1/3 of the US's crop species.

Bees are reported dying all over the world...In 22 states and in some states as high as 75-80%! & not only the US - also in Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Taiwan, China, India, Brazil.. it's happening everywhere.

What is going on?

What is killing the bees?
  • Mites?
  • Fungus?
  • Pesticides?
  • Genetically Modified crops?
  • Electromagnetic Radiation - cellphones?

"If the bees disappear off the face of the earth, then man would have only 4 years left." ~Einstein

(I am hesitant to post this.. almost too sad.. but I watched a lot of bee videos on YouTube and this one hit home to me the most. ...& so, here goes)
To Bee or Not to Bee
