Hope for the bees

I’ve read stories about bee “colony collapse” with growing alarm–most of our food must be pollinated by bees to grow! I feel pretty powerless to do anything to help (aside from trying to have as many flowers as possible in my garden to attract the local honeybees).

Parasites seems to be a major factor in colony collapse, and I was excited to read this article about using mushrooms to address the parasites.

How great to solve this problem without chemicals–let’s hope they’re onto something here.

Check out the article here.
