Price of Honey Goes Up As Beekeepers Go Down 2/17/14
CBS 7 News
If you've noticed the price of honey going up, you might not be alone. Bee expert Gillbert Malendez tells CBS 7 the price of honey could be on the rise because of the decrease in beekeepers. He says something called "mites" have been attaching themselves to bees in the area, making them go wild and leave the beekeepers hive. With so many bees leaving the hives, beekeepers are discouraged to continue their practice.
