In this short video Time discusses the important link between the massive decline in honey bee populations and pesticides. Specifically, some pesticides are thought to cause a certain disorder called "colony collapse disorder." A new study from Harvard's School of Public Health claims that pesticides are the probable cause of the sudden decline of honey bee colonies. While the connection is strong, more research needs to be conducted to find how exactly the pesticides are affecting the bees. Finding a cause is the first step to finding a solution. It's difficult to truly imagine what the irreversible decline of these bees would do to our food supply.
