No more bees

"If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live. No more bees, no more pollination ... no more men!" [A Einstein]

A recent article of the French Newspaper "Le Monde" titled "The bees sick of the man" it is said: ...In the USA, where it is described as the “syndrome of collapse of the colonies”, about 25% of the livestock would have disappeared during the winter 2006-2007. In Europe, France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Greece, Poland, the Netherlands were touched since the beginning of the years 2000. The losses can reach, locally, up to 90% of the colonies.
