1: The Basics of CCD | During the winter of 2006-2007, some beekeepers began to report unusually high losses of 30-90 percent of their hives. As many as 50 percent of all affected colonies demonstrated symptoms inconsistent with any known causes of honeybee death: sudden loss of a colony's worker bee population with very few dead bees found near the colony. This combination of events resulting in the loss of a bee colony has been called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) .Retrieved from (www.epa.gov).

2: THE AFFECTS OF WHAT HAPPEN AFTER THE WORKERS BEES DON'T RETURN | After the workers bees go out to do the work of pollinating crops and they don't return, that's just the first step that cause the colony to fall. The queen and young is still living in the hives but, hives cannot sustain themselves without worker bees and would eventually die.

3: VARSITIES TYPES OF BEES | Bumble bees are see most often on flowers. They pollinate plants and gather nectar to make honey, but don't make nearly as much as other honey bees species. | Yellow Jackets are the bees species always one your can soda, at the park.

Wasps have the most powerful sting in the bee species. | Carpenter Bees, is just 1 inch long and weighted close to one gram. They are called Carpenter Bees because they drill hole in to wood with there mandibles, this is not their food but use to make hives.

5: THINGS THAT'S BEING DONE TO SAVE THE BEES> | Many scientist have theories of why one of the world's most important pollinator of crops is dying off. | People from all over the world is trying to do there parts to help the bees. Some have become beekeepers, some have even created websites and ask there government to invest money and research in finding the cure for (CCD) because if the cure is not find it would cost 35-50 billion dollars annually because of (CCD).

Honeybees alive because these tiny insert is one of the reason why human have survived, and many may ask how comes well Honeybees is the wold's biggest pollinator of 80-90 percent of crops and this planet and if they get extinct. Human beings will only have a short amount of time before we and other species die off so, SAVE THE HONEYBEES.!!
