UNDATED (CNN) -- You probably don't see too many of these guys around anymore. And that's not likely to change anytime soon.
Honeybees are still dying off in large numbers. Over the last five years, about a third of captive honeybees wound up dead at the end of each winter.
The bees are important because they pollinate much of the food we eat. No one knows for sure what's causing them to die.
There is a little good news, though.
Despite the mass bee deaths, beekeepers say they are able to rejuvenate their hives each year and get their populations back to previous levels.
