Disposed paper cups killing bees

Disposed paper cups outside juice and coffee shops could be behind the India's Colony collapse Disaster (CCD) disappearing honey bee population that pollinate 80% of all crops.

The sugary residue in these paper cups attract honey bees who look at it as an alternative source of food instead of flowers.

A 'considerable population' of honey bees who take a dip into these cups never return. Researchers say these cups act as death traps for them.

A latest study published in the journal 'Current Science' says bees while competing to collect sugar, fall into cups containing residual beverage (coffee/tea/milk/juice) and are unable to fly, leading to their death.
