Robert Harvey, a beekeeper, or apiarist, secures a cover over bee hives stacked on a truck as he prepares to transfer the bees to another crop after they completed pollinating a blueberry field near Columbia Falls, Maine June 23, 2014. Over recent years, bees have been dying at a rate the U.S. government says is economically unsustainable. Honey bees pollinate plants that produce about a quarter of the food consumed by Americans, including apples, watermelons and beans. A lawsuit has now been filed by environmental groups in the United States seeking an injunction restricting the approval of a controversial class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids, or 'neonics'. These pesticides have become a subject of scrutiny in Europe and the United States as concern has mounted that they harm honeybees and other pollinators. Picture taken June 23, 2014.

Beekeeper Anton Hiltpolt checks a honeycomb at his farm in the western Austrian village of Seefeld May 14, 2013. The European Union's food safety regulator has added a BASF insecticide to the list of crop chemicals it suspects of playing a role in declining bee populations. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said in a statement May 27, 2013, that BASF's fipronil poses an "acute risk to honeybees when used as a seed treatment for maize", citing dust drift in particular.
The EU last month moved to ban three of the world's most widely used pesticides for two years because of fears that they are linked to a plunge in the population of bees critical to the production of crops. Picture taken May 14. REUTERS/ Dominic Ebenbichler (AUSTRIA - Tags: ANIMALS AGRICULTURE)

French beekeeper Yves Leroux, who is retired and an amateur apiarist, works around a beehive oin La Halle des Machines de l'Ile in Nantes, western France, April 24, 2013. A new trend across Europe is to put bee colonies on city rooftops, taking advantage of the fact that bees adapt well to urban living and can target the many varieties of long-blooming inner-city greenery. A global decline in the numbers of bees, the reasons for which are baffling scientists, is alarming everyone from farmers to European Union policy makers.

French apiarist Andre Frieh holds a colored honeycomb in a wood frame from one of his beehives at his home in Ribeauville near Colmar Eastern France, October 5, 2012. Bees at a cluster of bee hives in northeastern France have been producing honey in mysterious shades of blue and green, alarming their keepers who now believe residue from containers of M&M's candy processed at a nearby biogas plant is the cause. Since August, beekeepers around the town of Ribeauville in the region of Alsace have seen bees returning to their hives carrying unidentified colourful substances that have turned their honey unnatural shades.
