HELP save our honey bees!
Did you know that our honey bee populations are disappearing at an alarming rate!

"Over the last three years more than one in three honey bee colonies has died nationwide, posing a serious risk to our natural food supply. "

"One cause of these losses is an alarming phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder, or “CCD.” When a hive experiences CCD, the honey bees mysteriously desert their hive and die. CCD symptoms have been reported by more than thirty-five states across the U.S. and in many other countries." 
Researchers do not know exactly what causes CCD, but they believe there may be many factors contributing to the problem, including viruses, mites, chemical exposure and poor nutrition."
