We don't think about the tiny honeybee very often.  But it's quickly making big headlines around the world!  The honeybee is the cornerstone of the environment and critical to our food supply but around the world, this tiny animal is disappearing by the millions.

Honey Bees are responsible for 70 percent of our food crop pollination.

According to the Canadian Honey Council, “The value of honey bees to  pollination of crops is estimated at over $2 billion annually.” The Canadian Association of Professional Apiarists (CAPA) suggests that Canada sustained a national average of honey bee deaths of 29.3 % in 2011.
