Stage Challenge: To BEE or Not to BEE
Where have the Bees gone?  Gathering nectar, the social bee pollinates flowers in a relationship that produces floral beauty, honey and allows the growth of essential foods for humans.  The varroa mite, the use of insecticides and monoculture farming can bring colony collapse and death to bees and eventually the end of flowers and our food supply.  Can bees survive?
