    University of Dundee researchers have warned of a "striking" difference in honey bee survival rates between the east and west of Scotland. Scientists studied more than 600 colonies across the country over 12 months. Of 274 colonies examined in the east of the country, 58, or 21%, failed, while only 14 of 286 colonies failed in the west, a decline of about 5%.
