Bob King Interviewed Regarding Diminishing Bee Population

On Sunday, November 3, 2013, Bob King, Science Specialist for MCC’s Agriculture and Life Sciences Institute, was interviewed by 13 WHAM (Channel 13), as part of a news story regarding the national dwindling bee population.

The “As Bees Vanish, Food Supply is Threatened” segment also includes an interview with a local beekeeper whose concern for diminishing bee numbers brings to the forefront a national problem.  Bees are essential for cross pollination of plants and trees, to say nothing of the production of honey, and they are nationally disappearing at an alarming rate.

What is causing this frightening and growing problem?  Disease?  Heavy use of pesticides?  Watch this eye-opening interview by clicking on the attached link.
