A real problem to worry about…..

I’ve only seen a couple of wild bees up here in the last 3 years. I do know that my garden didn’t do so well last year. The big crop up here is hops for beer making and no bees no beer.

I guess that would get their attention, right.

News on Colony Collapse Disorder, the latest on bee disappearance and declining bee populations

Across the United States and around the world, the honey bee populations are mysteriously vanishing. Honey bee colony losses are not uncommon, however, this sort of disappearence is unprecedented. This honey bee colony loss is due to uncharacteristic bee behavior: bees are failing to return to the hive.

Is it an unparalleled natural rythmic ebb in the honey bee population or a portentous prophetic warning of a failing ecosystem? Solving this mystery could have far-reaching effects.

Their decline should draw focus to the critical role the honey bee plays in our food chain and the impact their loss will have on our ecology and economy. As of now, there are several theories posed to explain what has been termed “Colony Collapse Disorder” (CCD).

This site’s aim is to keep up with the latest news findings in the U.S. and from around the world on the rapid honey bee population decline; will provide a knowledge environment for honey bee basics, and will serve as an information resource for beekeepers and hobbyists alike to hopefully increase the honey bee population through best beekeeping practices.
