When I googled, What the hell is going on with the honeybees, I got lots of different insights to why so many honeybees are not producing honey and dying. Is it a virus, mites, pollution, pesticides or are they just feeling abused and have decided to go on strike?
I suppose if I was a little honeybee pollinating 130 different crops each year that the food industry depended on and was getting no thanks and only more and more genetically modified plants to pollinate, I’d bee pretty ticked off too.
But what really is this honeybee havoc all about – Does anyone know yet?
A few weeks ago, a young bee keeper posted a plea in our Myspace group to encourage people to take up bee keeping as a positive step for honeybee populations. And some members suggested planting bee-friendly flowers to support the bees that are still buzzing along. Excellent ideas, as I’m all for anything that encourages our bees to hang around and help pollinate our food supply… and allow us to have honey!
