Beekeepers: Google Hosts Bee Hives to Stop Colony Collapse Disorder
Google is constantly evolving and making changes to their search algorithms to provide better results to the end user. Now, instead of making changes to a virtual world, Google is making an environmental change that help fight against the ongoing problem of a decreasing bee population. The issue has been titled Colony Collapse Disorder and has been a serious concern since bees pollinate a third of all U.S. crops.
Four bee hives are being hosted at Google Headquarters in Silicon Valley as a contribution to put an end to CCD. The project, titled Hiveplex, has been assigned to a chef and a software engineer that deals with the beekeeping duties and works with a bee removal company to keep things in order.
Google claims the bee hive is dually beneficial in that it will provide more organic results (honey) and more bees to our environment. Hopefully, with everyone contributing a little to stop CCD, the search for this global issue will be put to an end.
