Who'll buy my bee?

Bean-counting ecologists are pricing the environment in the USA. A single honeybee is valued at $20 by a Utah researcher after he estimated the value of its rabbit-eye blueberry pollination out west.

Mmmm, that comes in at $1.2m a full summer colony. At last, I'm a millionaire -- a multi-millionaire, no less! I'm off to e-Bay pronto!
