More Than Honey

Last year 41% of one of Virginia's most dedicated agricultural workforce died. No, they're not human workers; they're of the winged variety.  Bees across Virginia, and the world, are dying in record numbers, and the cause for these widespread deaths has left many scientists puzzled. Join us today for a look at the important role bees play in feeding Virgina and what can be done to halt their steady decline.
