DiscussWhat's killing the bees?
« on: 26/02/2016 10:13:07 »
It is that time of year again when we should start to see bees buzzing around gardens but populations of bees have been declining recently as disease and lack of food stores are hitting them hard. With a third of global food supply coming from crop species that are to some extent dependent on bees itís important that we halt this decline. Felicity Bedford went to Cambridge Universityís Kingís College to meet Kristen Treen, who looks after the honeybees there, and see how their beehives have been getting on this winter, she also spoke to Exeter University's Lena Wilfert to hear about the Varroa parasite that is impacting bee colonies.
