Why Should You Care About Colony Collapse Disorder?
Since 2006, the honeybee population has been diminishing at an alarming rate, from a spectrum of causes known as CCD. More than producers of honey, honeybees are essential to pollinate one-third of all the produce grown in the U.S.—including 90% of apples and oranges and 100% of almonds grown, plus melons, tomatoes, sweet potatoes and numerous other crops. It’s a little-known problem that can seriously impact our food supply.
