Honey Bees APis MEllifera

This winter, Kansas lost 50% of their bee population. A suspected reason for the sudden loss in the bee population is blamed on a insecticide called neonicotinoids. This insecticide can cause paralysis and eventually death for insects.

Varroa destructor mites have also been known to affect honey bee colonies. These mites do not greatly affect the bees directly, but they can carry a disease known as Varroosis.
