The Wellness Librarian Is Back! and With Good News: Bees Are on the Move

As found in Doane’s Agricultural Report of January 12, 2015, data collected by Syngenta is showing that the world’s bee populations are increasing rather than decreasing. The report says that bee colonies in the United States have risen 13 percent since 2008 and Canadian beehives are now at their highest levels since 1987. In Europe, the report says hives have increased in number for the past three years. The Food and Agriculture Organization says that worldwide, beehives have increased by 10 million, or 13 percent, since the year 2000.  Source: Texas Agriculture, February 20, 2015.
