The Magic and Challenges for Honey Bees

Colony Collapse Disorder is name given the massive unexplained losses of honey bees the past two years. This is a world wide phenomenon and the experts are closing in on the real causes.

We explore the magical world of bees with just the right person. It took some doing to pin her down to an hour but finally we connected with Professor Marla Spivak, Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Entomology at the University of Minnesota.

It is a fascinating hour and you’l learn about bee sex, bee food, how they live, their social life, their strengths, weaknesses and how what we classify as SuperFoods; honey, bee pollen, propolis and royal jelly are created. Our own small National Geographic on honey bees
