Colony Collapse Disorder.

I thought that the bee keepers amongst us might find this article to be of interest.

Much of it has gone over my head but I am concerned about what the decline of the bee population might mean for our countryside.

Its a very scary thought that we could lose so many colonies so quickly. Hopefully something will be able to be done about it quickly.  I wasnt really aware of how much we relied on bees until starting my course last year and then having bees of my own. Now i am doing as much as i can to make my garden bee friendly
