Increasingly each spring, beekeepers open their hives to find entire colonies wiped out. But beekeepers aren't the only ones who are worried - bees pollinate at least a third of the world's crops. If the dramatic decline in worldwide bee populations continues, essential food crops could disappear, along with entire ecosystems. The Strange Disappearance of the Bees is a frightening expose on the massive deaths of bees recently sweeping the world. Bringing together the latest scientific research, this documentary explores the constellation of factors causing dramatic colony collapses in beehives around the world. Bees have the task of keeping the world alive: if they go in sufficient numbers, we may well follow.
