What happened to the bees this year October 26, 2007

Posted by Al in : educational,nature , trackback

I’d read, earlier this year, that the bee population was in decline; and I’d noticed that there were very few bees in our garden this year, but why this sudden decline had occurred was a mystery. Although this article doesn’t provide all the answers, it certainly puts forward a good explanation of why the dramatic decline in bee numbers, and what can be done to fix the problem. There’s a good quote in the article that sums up why we should worry about bees:

If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.
