How you can help honeybees

Colony Collapse Disorder is still a mystery, but you can help the honeybees with one simple tip.

Though you might not be familiar with Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), it’s a buzz-worthy topic with far-reaching effects. This puzzling condition causes droves of seemingly healthy bees, responsible for pollinating up to one-third of all produce we eat, to abandon their hives. Theories suggest pesticides or pathogens may be to blame, but little is known about the condition. What can you do? Purchase products from philanthropic, honey-centric companies that support honeybee health and CCD research.
