First off I wanted to start by saying I thought this was a very interesting documentary because I did not know how important Bee’s are too our normal everyday lives. This documentary really made we want to know what was happening to all these Bee’s and who, if anyone, is to blame for the steady decline of Bee’s. Though I didn’t find out anything too ground breaking in my google searches, I found a plethora of interesting articles on Bee’s and the many benefits they bring and learned even more than what was covered in the video.
