Dear Mythbusters,

Dear Mythbusters,

On behalf of the many hapless honeybees who are falling victim to CCD: How about next time you feature a segment on killing them (whether the myth is busted or not), you kindly remind your viewers that it is not necessary to ever kill a swarm of honeybees at all, but instead, call a local beekeeper who would probably be more than happy to have them. If that beekeeper does not want them, it's likely that they can refer you to someone who does!

The honeybees would greatly appreciate your popular show bringing some awareness to CCD and enlightening the viewers that there IS a humane way to rid their property of honeybees.

The Honeybee Helpers

They have a show on the Discovery Channel, which I thought was supposed to be educational...

I just saw this episode last week and couldn't believe they did a segment testing, "Does vodka kill honeybees?" without saying what people *should* do if they want to get rid of them on their property.

Ay yie yie!!
