Even Haagen-Dazs is concerned! They have a website- http://www.helpthehoneybees.com/ and a new flavor of ice cream... Vanilla Honey.... that benefits honeybee research.
I've menioned I'm a gardener- of flowers, herbs, vegetables... So this whole bee crisis worries me. According to sources, both honeybees and butterflies are disappearing. Apparently in London, swallows have disappeared! The culprit is unknown, but there are lots of theories. In 2005, the Varoa mite was blamed for the loss of half (50%!) of the American bee population. The crisis continues, and the mite theory continues, but some are wondering if pesticides are to blame, or perhaps GMO plants don't produce the "right" kind of pollen, and then there is the theory that cell phone towers disrupt their navigation.
