To have Bees or Not To Have Bees

There is no question...we MUST have the little bumbly bizzy buzzy bees. Our lives depend upon theirs.
To The Best Of Our Knowledge has a great show on "bees" tonight. Take a listen.

Bees are responsible for forty percent of the food we put in our mouths.  It sounds astonishing, but without bees, we could find ourselves facing food shortages and a collapse of the green and flowered world.  In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge,  a peek inside the world of bees, from the once-in-a-lifetime mating flight of the queen bee to the California almond agri-business, where most of the bees in North America go to work.  And, the poetry of bees.
