Why We Need Bees

If it wasn't for the very active life of the Honey Bee, many of the fruits and vegetables we eat everyday would never exist. Bee pollination is responsible for at least 30% of the world's crops and 90% of its wild flowers.

What is Colony Collapse Disorder?

In 2006, Hackenberg Apiaries lost 80% of their hives due to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). CCD is a highly unusual hive condition where the adult honey bee population becomes low or non-existent, with a live queen in the hive, and no trace of dead honey bees. The cause of this strange condition has yet to be discovered.
