Summary
All bees are at risk, whether it be from loss of habitat, pesticide use or disease, among other factors. Because of the integral role these insects play in the ecology of our planet, we may be at risk as well. The author debunks many myths about these creatures, and takes us behind the scenes with scientists around the world who are working to save these fascinating creatures before it's too late
