Along with his band called Be, artist Wolfgang Buttress collaborated with 40,000 honeybees to create a soundtrack of experimental music.
The global spread of a virus that deforms the wings of honeybees and kills them in droves was caused by humans, new research has found. According to the study published this week in Science, the problem dates back to the mid-20th Century when Asian honeybees traded widely in the former Soviet Union...

A new study finds evidence that humans have played a key role in the global spread of a deadly bee virus
The spread of a disease that is decimating global bee populations is manmade, and driven by European honeybee populations, new research has concluded.

A new analysis of one of the most widespread honeybee viruses, deformed wing virus, or DWV, shows that the virus has gone from an endemic to a global epidemic because of greater movement of a major vector, the Varroa mite. The mite has spread in large part due to human trade of the bee colonies it infests. Show More Summary
Across the world, bees are succumbing to a deadly virus, and a new study places the blame squarely on humans. The good news is, there are some common-sense measures we can take right now to start protecting the honeybees we rely on to pollinate our crops. Read more...
Their forced migration along human trade routes is to blame.
Busy bees put in longer hours in anticipation of a day off work because of rain. But why they do so is still a mystery
Researchers have been examining scientific knowledge and drawing parallels between suicide in humans and the self-sacrificial behaviors of colony-like -- or eusocial -- species such as shrimp, mole rats and insects.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Could human suicide have evolutionary roots in self-sacrificial behaviors like those seen in species such as honeybees and ants? A Florida State University researcher who is one of the nation's foremost experts in suicide is trying to find out. Thomas Joiner, the Robert O. Show More Summary

Late last year, a small team from Honeybee Robotics went to a gypsum quarry to test Planetary Deep Drill, a technology prototype designed to chew tens—and eventually, hundreds—of meters beneath icy planetary surfaces.
What do snapping shrimp, naked mole rats, ants, honeybees, and humans all have in common? They all share a similar colony-like organizational system that biologists have termed eusociality. Eusocial species have been remarkably successful in both surviving and thriving through the use of colony-level cooperation. Show More Summary
When blood-sucking varroa mites infested their colony, the bees fought back.
The Environmental Protection Agency has just released a report reaffirming what researchers have been telling us for years: neonicotinoid pesticides are devastating America's bee population. The report singles out one widely-used pesticide, imidacloprid, as posing a particular risk. Show More Summary
The parasitic varroa mite has been wiping out honeybee colonies globally since the late '80s. Now scientists and beekeepers have teamed up to selectively breed bees with a unique, mite-fighting trait.

A new EPA study finds that at least one of the neonic pesticides often blamed for honeybee woes really does hurt the pollinators.
