BLANKENFELDE, GERMANY - APRIL 25: A sign reads: 'Honey from of own apiary' outside the home of beekeper Reiner Gabriel near Berlin on April 25, 2013 in Blankenfelde, Germany. Local beekeepers claim their yearly loss rates within their bee populations has gone from an average of 10% per year to 30% per year over the last 10 years, though they are unsure whether the cause lies with a mite and a virus it might be spreading or with the increased use of certain pesticides by local farmers.
