Ask “Silence of the Bees” Expert Dr. Diana Cox-Foster

Where have all the honeybees gone? An episode of NATURE called “Silence of the Bees” takes us all over the world to ask scientists that very question. Since the winter of 2006, millions of bees have vanished, leaving behind empty hives and a damaged ecosystem.

Dr. Diana Cox-Foster, Professor of Entomology and insect biochemistry researcher, studies the causes of  the sudden decline of honeybees. Dr. Cox-Foster teaches at Pennsylvania State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and is featured in “Silence of the Bees.”

After watching the show, many of us had more questions about the bees’ mysterious condition, so we asked Dr. Cox-Foster to be our guest. This week she is answering your questions about honeybees and their impact on the environment. Leave your queries for her below and check back next week for her responses.
