Bees are disappearing. Sounds a bit like the X-Files... but according to some articles I just read, up to 60 or 70 % of honeybees in quite a few regions of the States and Canada are gone, and in some places in Europe it happens, too (if not as much. yet?)



Obviously the problem's not just that there'll be less honey, but that lots of plants depend on bees to fertilise them in order for us to get food. Let's hope the bees recover from whatever makes them die! eek
