Winter Effect on BeehivesThe cold weather has really had an effect on the bee population.

Check out this story of a local beehive owner who lost all but one honey beehive because of the cold winter temperatures.

Bees do much more than produce our honey. "Pollination is the real value of honey bees," said Joseph. "We all like to eat a diversity of foods in our diets. We depend on honey bees. If we want to see those flowers out there in the environment, we need pollinators," said Joseph. (Source KCCI.com)
