I finally watched Vanishing of the Bees last night and I would recommend it to everyone. The sudden collapse of bee colonies (dubbed colony collapse disorder) is frightening especially when you think that about 30% of all our food is pollinated by bees. Without them who or what will do that job?
CCD is a real issue that all of us can do our part to combat the problem by using organic fertilizers and not using pesticides. If pesticides are used then make sure they are not systemic. We can buy organic food, visit farmer's markets, plant a garden or even set up our own hive at home.
