42% of honeybee hives killed off in U.S. last year

More than two out of five American honeybee colonies died in the past year, and surprisingly the worst die-off was in the summer, according to a U.S. federal survey.

Since April 2014, beekeepers lost 42.1 per cent of their colonies, the second-highest rate in nine years, according to an annual survey conducted by a bee partnership that includes the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
