Buzzing in the sense we need to get a move on and all start helping but not so buzzing in the way of sound as our bee colonies continue to bee eradicated.

According to (and plenty of ecologists, botanists and scientists of the plant variety across the country) billions of UK bees are dying at a speedy rate indeed. One in three honey bee colonies died last winter from often unknown causes.

Why must we fret so for our little buzzing friends? Well apart from saving them from eradication they are responsible for pollinating one-third of all (yes all!) the food we eat. The great scientist himself, Mr Albert Einstein predicted: "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man."

From an economic perspective bee pollination of commercially grown crops is believed to be worth £165 million/year. We really do need to lend our stripy friends a hand.
