For at least a decade, honeybee colonies throughout the world have been hit with a mysterious condition, dubbed by scientists as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). In infected hives, the adult worker bees leave the hive and never return.

I so hope that they find an answer to this problem very
We need our bees. We will all be eating fruits and vegies grown in a lab if they can't fix this.

Yards and gardens that attract bees are also beautiful and colorful. My yard is currently in full bloom with seven trees covered in flowers. Nearly a dozen flowering shrubs will be coming into bloom about the time the trees are finished. I do not us pesticides of any kind and rely on natural pest control such as Lady Bugs, Mantis and birds. Build bird houses to attract birds. Adult birds eat a variety of foods, but all of their young are fed insects. Bees are not on the bird's menu.

I hope they find a real answer soon. We have seen our big bumbles so far but no honey bees yet. We saw a few last year.

Even with the proliferation of blooms, I am concerned that my fruit crop this year will be very small. I have not seen any bees, honey or bumble. It is worrying.
