A stunning, visual commentary on the plight of our world"s honeybees and their continued decline. Instead of fretting or burying our heads in the sand, it's important for us to examine, question, and acknowledge how generations of mankind's own interference, manipulation and greed has impacted bee populations. In China, Mao"s disastrous and unintelligent policy of killing one billon sparrows set in motion its widespread use of chemicals today. China now has to hand-pollinate it's crops due to the loss of bees. Here in N. America, large-scale farming's unchecked use of pesticides will eventually guarantee us a similar outcome. It is also shameful how antibiotic application on bees, stressful bee-pollintation company practices, and humankind's manipulative methods of queen bee selective processes have weakened overall bee traits and their ability to withstand disease and adverse conditions. As suggested in the film, the addition and mix of African killer bees, through natural migration, might help strengthen traits and immunity in honeybees. In the end though, unless we address the rampant use of pesticides and antibiotics, and the problems of big-business in large-scale farming operations, we all will suffer. The common person can do a lot by just becoming aware and communicating what we expect from government, scientists and the farming community instead of being docile and passive.

If you are a sensitive person with empathy for the creatures on this planet who are in danger of annihilation, DO NOT watch this movie. It goes into great and graphic detail the ways that monoculture, pesticides, manipulation of bee colonies, and human greed all contribute and influence what looks to be the eventual demise of the bee species, and, as it follows that they pollonate plants, the elimination of our food.
Good movie for shock value, but I feel totally helpless to see any change. I have stopped eating honey, that is all I can do to help.

Einstein probably never said that if all the bees disappeared off the face of the earth, man would have only four years to live. You don't have to be a genius, however, to understand the impact the disappearance of honeybees would have on the world. This amazing film explains it all. The cinematography that takes you inside the hive and follows bees in flight is phenomenal.

Without bees the world's population would not last long as this documentary relays important updated information about feral and killer bees!
