Busy as California Bees....

and yes...they HAVE been busy.

California's bees perked up last year, producing 35 percent more honey than in 2007, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report issued this week.The resurgence is one of several signs
that the health of the state's commercial bees is improving.

But beekeepers and researchers say it's not yet clear the threat known as colony collapse disorder has passed. The still-mysterious condition, which causes bees to abandon their hives, thrust the insects into the media spotlight in 2007. The nation's 2.4 million commercial beehives help to produce nearly one-third of U.S. food. - Sacramento Bee
