As we can see from previous paragraphs, bees help us live a healthier life without the need to use any chemical in the food we consume on daily basis. Therefore, it is important for us to be inform and worried as to why many bees are vanishing. Our bee colonies are going through a massive breakdown which was discovered in 2006.
