Around 2006, beekeepers and scientists started talking about something called colony collapse disorder. CCD at that time was a new phenomenon; suddenly whole hives of worker bees started disappearing, leaving behind a queen, plenty of food, and a few nurse bees. Ever since, scientists have been trying to figure out why. Pollinators such as honeybees are essential for much of what we grow and eat. Unfortunately, honeybee populations, both locally and nationally, have been suffering catastrophic losses. Join Larry Dapsis, Entomologist with the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, to review honeybee biology and the factors responsible for the current problems they are facing. Also learn about the state of wild pollinators like bumble bees and things that residents can do to help them. Plan the Spring garden now to help bees for the next growing season.
