           LIVING GREEN - Thursday, July 24, 2008

Good morning, 

Yesterday we talked about Bee Colony Collapse Disorder and 
the threat it poses to U.S. food production. 

While the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder hasn't been 
pinpointed as yet, it's thought to be a result of parasites 
taking advantage of warmer, more humid conditions in some 
areas and possibly the effects of pesticides. 

As huge as the problem is, there are a couple things we can 
do as individuals. Scroll down for some steps you can take 
at home. 

Thanks for reading, 

Your Living Green editor

Get two (4 lights) for $4.98

These night lights provide a great way to ensure energy safety 
throughout your entire home. You've seen the same ones sold in 
Ace Hardware for as much as $4.99 each. Now you can get them 
for $2.99 or get two sets (4 lights) for $4.98... less than the 
normal pack of just one.

Each diminutive (2" x 2" x 3/8") light emits a soft glow that 
lets you know where a wall or door may be when you most need to 
know. Ever stub your toe in a wall? No annoying light bulb to 
replace. Remember Get One For $2.99 or Two For $4.98, visit:

We can all do our part by making our yards attractive to 
non-commercially kept bees; by planting flowers; or better 
still, a vegetable garden and most importantly - using 
less pesticides in our own gardens.

"Wild" honeybees may be all that's left soon, and in small 
numbers - where they haven't been affected by colony 
collapse disorder or have perhaps developed some sort of 
immunity to whatever causes CCD, they may be the popu-
lations that help save the species - and some of those may 
be visiting your yard. 

And, of course, it is always a good idea to talk about the 
proplem. You might be surprised how many people don't even 
know this is going on. And while talking to people is a 
good idea writing a letter to government representatives is 
a better one.
