Disappearing bees - CCD

There is a mysterious disease that is killing bee colonies around the world. A huge percentage of colonies are dying and we don't know why.

The problem has been dubbed Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and though it is not the first time that bees have seen a dramatic decrease in numbers this latest problem has the beekeepers around the globe rather worried.

We went out to California to have a look and research our book and we ended up with a video clip on the Guardian.
