Mass bee death mystery hits Canada museum
One of Canada’s largest museums is investigating the sudden death of thousands of bees. The BBC reported that the bees were contained in a glass enclosure as part of a beehive exhibit. Officials at the Royal Ontario Museum said 20,000 bees had died in the space of just two days last week. They said that while the cause of the mass deaths remained unclear, poor ventilation, disease or a lack of worker bees could be to blame. It now plans to replace the exhibit with new bees, which must be thrilled at the prospect.
