Millions of honey bees are dying in the war against Zika
The fight to stop the spread of Zika claimed millions of unexpected casualties this week after Dorchester County,South Carolina,sprayed aerial pesticides in a bid to control mosquito populations. Soon after the pesticides were released over the area on Sunday morning,huge numbers of honeybees started crawling out of their hives in a bid to escape,dying just outside the entrance. The vast majority of the Dorchester County bee deaths happened at Flowertown Bee Farm and Supply,which lost 46 hives,or about 2.5 million individual honeybees.
