Honeybees are dying across the country.
As a result, fruit crops in Southwestern Michigan may suffer.
Beekeepers from more than 20 states are reporting a condition called Colony Collapse Disorder.
The ailment has killed off tens of thousands of honeybee colonies.
The deaths could lead to poor fruit quality and higher production costs in Michigan's 359 million dollar fruit industry.
Bees are vital to pollinating apples, cherries, cucumbers and blueberries.
