Colony Collapse Disorder is on the rise in the United States. Research shows causes to
include the following...
Pesticides - are chemicals that are designed to kill insects. Some varieties, specifically
neocolonialist, are proving harmful for bee populations.
Loss of Habitat -As rural areas become urban weeds and flowers are often stripped, leaving the bees
very little food for survival. This loss of habitat inhibits the growth of the bee population
Climate Change -
Due to climate change, seasons have been shifting. Warmer winters have adversely affected bees. For example when bees come out of hibernation, the flowers they need for food have already bloomed and died.
Pathogens - carried by mites weaken bees, which makes them more susceptible to pesticide poisoning. Pesticides compound the problem of pathogens, making bees more susceptible to mites and pests..
Every month a portion of sales from each Beez' Product is donated to bee research
programs and organizations seeking to further the protection and proliferation of
pollinating bee species.
