Video – “Another victim of this long winter could ultimately affect your next trip to the grocery store,” says WOOD TV.
Farmers and growers use people like Don Lam to supply them with bees in the spring to make sure their crops get pollinated.
“90% of our bee keeps have lost most of their bees this winter in this area,” Lam said.
Soon Lam will head down to Georgia to replace his bee crops, but suppliers are sold out, which means farms, not just in Michigan but throughout the Midwest, will have fewer bees to pollinate crops.
Fewer bees means fewer apples and blueberries this year; ultimately you could see the prices of those products at the grocery store go up.
What have I been saying about fighting in the streets for food?
