Beekeepers Work At Bureau County Honey Co.

Carniolan honey bees fly near hives owned by Bureau County Honey Co. near Hennepin, Illinois, U.S., on Thursday, July 3, 2014. Bees pollinate scores of plants from apricots to zucchini and are responsible for increasing crop values by $15 billion each year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Some beekeepers blame a class of pesticides called neonicotinoids that have gained widespread use in the past decade and have been linked to a mysterious die-off of bees called Colony Collapse Disorder.
