This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report.

What has happened to America's honeybees? Last fall, from states with warm climates began to report a sudden loss of honey bees. Losses were reported in twenty-four states and into Canada. Today, some beekeepers say thirty percent to ninety percent of their honey bees are gone. Food prices could as a result.
