No Bees = No Food

Another link in the chain has been discovered in the mystery surrounding the seemingly world-wide collapse of beehive colonies. A particular type of pesticide that was developed to be less damaging to humans and mammals apparently affects the bees so they are unable to return back to the beehive, reducing populations and making them extra susceptible to stresses that can collapse the whole colony.

CNN has an article discussing the latest studies. Once again it's come to light that pesticides may save crops from one threat, but we are creating new problems in return...
