I think I had heard something about this a while back but that was it, till today when one of my clients asked if I had heard anything about it. He watched a documentary on it the other day and said scientists are saying its colony collapse syndrome, could be from the pesticides we use or cell phone towers, lack of pollen in some areas that used to have fruits, flowers or vegies, or the other is a bee virus, like aids. Now the last one is feaky and lets home that is not it. I vote we all go out and plant bee friendly plants for them to have something to eat. I really like my honey

I've heard something about this, that they think there's a disease or something anyway. I hope they don't eventually all die off and we never see honey again as that would be a shame. It's unlikely they will completely die off though I'm sure, we just have to make more effort to plant things for them to live off.

Yes, I have heared the similar news.Scientists have said,honey bees have play a very important role in the ecosystem.If they disappear one day,humanity are also not far from the end of the world.The reason is that if bees do not spread the pollen,the total destruction of crops will makes humankind facing the threat of starvation.Regardless of whether this parlance is precise,we should protect bees.

we certainly wouldnt have fruit or vegies unless we learned to pollinate them ourselves, wow that is not a good thought, we need the bees :)

The thing about the plants and such is most of the weather these days hasn't been the best. Our own food supply had gradually diminished because of drought and natural disasters. I haven't heard about diminishing bees, but I'm sure the colonies that are kept with bee keepers aren't being too hurt, but can never bee (hehe) too sure.

I cant paste the site but I looked bee up and it says that even with bee keepers not all of the bee's are returning to the hives, cute pun hehe
