Here is a link to an article regarding the bee colony destruction that is occurring here in the states and in other parts of the world. We are losing one-third of the bee population each year to what appears to be presumibly safe insecticides. Our fruit and vegetable plants produce more when pollinated by bees. So if we continue to lose our bee population, doesn't that directly correlate to us losing fruit and vegetable production? FYI, I'm not a believer in the global warming movement, but I do believe we should be good stewards of our little part of the earth God has graced us with.
