The Bees are dying

New Scientist:

"About 50% to 90% of commercial honeybee colonies in the US have suffered from colony collapse disorder (CCD) – a strange phenomenon in which entire bee populations disappear from a colony within a matter of days. The bee die-off has sparked great concern as these insects play an essential role in the pollination of more than 90 fruit and vegetables worldwide."
