Over the past few years, there’s been a lot of ongoing buzz (pun completely intended) in the news about honeybees. In late 2006, the hardworking honeybee began disappearing, and soon became a mysterious curiosity of the natural world, one that is now known as colony collapse disorder. A new study led scientists to discover that the cause of colony collapse disorder was more varied than originally thought. An article published in the New York Times asks experts in the field to weigh out the debate of the disappearing bees.

It’s true, these little insects aren’t all sting and honey. In fact, while doing a little research for this post, I learned that a third of the world’s food supply depends on pollinators like the honeybee.
