California bees get on the cookie diet!

This week's Economist brings us news of one etymologist who is putting bees on a special diet. Apparently the bees brought in to pollinate California's almond crop have been suffering from Colony Collapse Disorder, and a special protein-rich dough is helping bees to survive long enough to finish the pollination. The bees have to eat their way through the cookie dough-like substance to leave the hive.
