How does the colony collapse disorder affect the cost of fruits and vegetables?

    The colony collapse disorder basically refers to the decreasing population of honey bees around the world. “Since CCD’s discovery in 2006, approximately 600,000 bees have disappeared, nearly 1/3 of the worlds’ bee population never to return again.” This phenomenon affects the prices of fruits an vegetables because prices increase for the farmer whose crops are not being pollinated, so then it will cost more to have those fruits and vegetables harvested and shipped. Higher shipping costs will add to the prices of these fruits and vegetables at grocery stores.
