The sound of no bees buzzing

So, this bee population problem is really scaring me.

It seems as if there's a new article everyday about the fact that a high proportion of our bee colonies have been disappearing, and experts don't yet know why.

I wondered how Burt's Bees, a company that is entirely dependent on healthy bee populations, was addressing the problem. They have a page with information about the crisis, which is called Colony Collapse Disorder. One solution they recommend is to plant wildflowers that are native to your region to attract bees and give them food.
