Honey bees are primarily responsible for pollinating nearly one third of all the food crops we eat. Over the past several years, the number of honey bee colonies has declined from approximately 5.5 million to less than 2.4 million colonies and this year the numbers continue to decline. Research is required to help identify factors responsible for what is being referred to as "Colony Collapse Disorder" (CCD) and to find environmentally-friendly solutions to eliminate pests like the small hive beetle that are responsible for destroying many South Carolina and southeastern hives.
