Save the Bees

Colony Collapse Disorder
Bees play an important role in our food supply. Over 70% of the food grown world wide relies on bee pollination.  Without bees we would not have many of the foods that we enjoy. Sadly the honey bees are dying at an alarming rate. Scientists are carrying out research to find out the reasons for the mysterious death of the honey bees.  

Many Factors are felt to contribute to Collapse Colony Disorder:
  • Varroa & Tracheal Mites
