Bees are responsible for one third of the food we eat. About 84 percent of all crops grown by humans require pollination from bees to grow. The mysterious disease, colony collapse disorder, which began in late 2006, has resulted in the destruction of more than 10 million beehives in the U.S. It happens when the colony, for some unknown reason, ups and leaves the queen behind. It’s thought that the widespread use of pesticides and poor nutrition might be factors, but researchers still aren’t totally sure why. An astounding 40 percent of colonies are still dying each year. When it comes down to it, the bees are in trouble and we must do something about it. So, take a look at and share this video about how your life would change without our buzzing friends.
