Colony collapse disorder continues to plague the bee population.
It means honey bees are disappearing in alarming numbers.
This is a big deal because, for one, bees play an important role in our food supply.
Some alarmists quote Albert Einstein: "If the bee disappears from the surface of the Earth, man would have no more than four years left to live."
This probably isn't true and Einstein never actually said it. But bees are very important.
