Research to Save the Honeybee
Scientists will tell you that honeybees are under attack these days. Predators like the Verroa mite and Colony Collapse Disorder are taking a toll on tens of thousands of bee hives across the United States. Why is that important? Because, honeybees pollinate around 30% of the crops we enjoy every day.

Now, researchers at a U.S. Department of Agriculture research facility in Louisiana have come up with some of the solutions needed to help save honeybee colonies. Using genetic research and cross-breeding techniques, researchers are seeing results in their fight to insure this important link in our food chain.
