Honeybees are disappearing fast, and nobody really knows why.  

Honeybees are responsible for pollination that directly affects agriculture and farming businesses; in short, decreasing honeybees, increasing food prices. 

In 2006, beekeepers reported losses of 30-90 percent of their hives, according to the USDA. Called “Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD),” this phenomenon has been attributed to everything from pesticide use to parasites and pathogens. 

Now, big companies, such as Häagen-Dazs and Burt’s Bees, are contributing part of their profits to honeybee health research
