• BURNS: Yes. And I would probably agree with you, but I do hope you give me an opportunity to tell the — tell America that honeybees are so important.

    CAVUTO: Agreed.

    BURNS: And they have a just case. The commercial beekeepers that have thousands of hives, they are losing — they are losing their homes. They are losing jobs. They are losing the bees. And that really should affect us. It really should bring us — honeybees to the forefront.

    CAVUTO: All right.

    BURNS: And if we can get more people keeping bees, hobbyists, like we used to — in my own state, we have lost 1,000 beekeepers over the last 20 years.

    CAVUTO: All right.

    BURNS: And bees are disappearing because less people are keeping them. And that's why we're trying to get more people to keep bees.

    But we still need the research...

    CAVUTO: Gotcha.

    BURNS: ... so that, when people start keeping bees, they will have the knowledge to keep them healthy and not die.

    CAVUTO: Understood.

    Dave, I would love to get you here at FOX in our New York studios. Maybe you can just unleash all those bees in Bill O'Reilly's office.

    (CROSSTALK)

    (LAUGHTER)

    BURNS: Well, I would love to sell you a hive and you can start keeping bees to help things out.

    CAVUTO: There we go. There are a lot of viewers who would welcome the opportunity.

    David, thank you very, very much.

    BURNS: Thank you.
