What is happening to the bees

What is happening to the worlds honey bees? I don't know but if you have not heard the worlds honey bees are disappearing and Scientists are not sure as to why. In 2006 colonies across the USA suddenly disappeared, leaving many unanswered questions in their wake.
Now although this blog is The Bees Bonnet, I confess to having no knowledge is this area at all but I was alarmed because up to 90% of flowering plant pollination, required for fruit production is done by these cute little fella's, and if their demise is not halted could have horrific consequences world wide.
So I thought I would link to a site that knows what its on about.   


  1. This is really to cheesy to add to the blog , but my wife Fleur whom often mentioned the multiple issues that I ranted about as being the bees in my bonnet once suggested that the disappearing bees were all trapped in my bonnet, and thus this blog

  2. American honeybees pollinate some 90 different crops that bring in more than $15 billion annually. We need to find out what is making the hives collapse and do something about it now.

  3. The Quran has a chapter on Bee. Read Surah 16: 67-68. It says: Varily there is indeed a sign for people who have wisdom. And your Load inspired the bee, saying: "Take you habitation in the mountains and in the trees and in that they erect." "Then, eat of all fruit, and follow the ways of your Lord made easy for you." "There comes forth from their bellies, a drink of varying colour wherein is healing for men. Verily, in this is indeed a sign for people who think."

    God has created bees for humans to enjoy the honey which is a medicine and good for our health. I think the scientists should understand what God is saying in the quran and find out if the bees have taken refuge in the mountains and tree tops that is why they have disappeared? God knows the best!
