Officials warn of critical bee shortage

Bees, a staple to American agriculture, are now in a critical shortage.

Studies say more than $15 billion in agriculture production depends on bees, that is nearly all the fruit and vegetables we eat.

Pesticides, mites, genetics and weather are to blame for the shortage.

The White House has now boosted incentives for bee keepers and stepped up research.

"If you don't do it ahead of time, why it's going to be too late," said beekeeper Bob Frey.

The harsh weather killed off three quarters of Frey's bees.

He said this will be the worst year for producing honey.
