They use water to drink, feed their brood and queen and cool their hive... unfortunately, 90% of water tested by the EPA including rain water now have harmful pesticides in it. This toxicity is what is causing bees to collapse. What people fail to realized is that only 0.07% of fresh water on the planet is available to us and 70% of that is being contaminated by agro-chemicals like toxic GMO cops and from systemic pesticides... another 20% is being contaminated by industry... such as fracking and the refining of oils and other materials. We are poisoning is the US alone about the size of western Europe with toxic GM crops and systemic pesticides and as a result the bees and their fellow beneficial insects are suffering. So what can you do? United we can bring about the world we all want.
