Honey bees have been dying like crazy over the last few years. In fact I usually see at least one or two dead bees lying on the ground around my house every day. In an average day I see more dead bees that I do live ones.
It turns out a parasite called “Nosema ceranae” was killing the bees, and entire colonies can now be cured with a round of antibiotics.
More bees! This is great news because I really enjoy running past my camellia bushes with my face covered whenever possible.
