She's Such a Ten!


Staggering. Yes, she's as beautiful as a ten. And yes, when this beauty stings you, it hurts ten times more than the last beauty you had. Her figure? Stunning. But I hear she's a ten figure gal. She is. 144,000,000,000,000 to be exact—which is the ten figure number of bees in the U.S. today. And yes, that's 144 Billion. Stunning, yes, but let's keep it that way because these beauties are in jeopardy, disappearing at an alarming rate. For instance, Since 2006, North American migratory beekeepers have seen an annual 30 percent to 90 percent loss in their colonies; non-migratory beekeepers noted an annual loss of over 50 percent. Similar losses were reported in Canada, as well as several countries in Europe, Asia, and Central and South America. Find out how you can help save these beautiful bees.—N.B.
