Podcast: ‘Are we all going to die?’ Entomologist breaks down the ‘bee-pocalypse’ that ‘threatens the global food supply’

Bees are important crop pollinators and reduced bee numbers have been described by farmers overseas as a bee crisis. Global honey production has also suffered because of bee diseases and hive collapse.
