The Death of Iowa's Honeybees

This past winter was particularly harsh on Iowa's honeybees.  Experts estimate that 65-70 percent of Iowa's honeybee colonies didn't survive.  Iowa State University Extension entomologist Donald Lewis talks with host Charity Nebbe about the plight of honeybees as well as pesticides that may pose a further risk to the state's pollinators. Also, ISU Extension horticulturist Richard Jauron joins the conversation to answer questions about the yard and garden.
