The bees, small as they are, are a CRUCIAL factor in the continued sustainability of the planet.

No to killer sprays, beause we need these busy bees to pollenate the flowers of our essential fruit and vegetables, and collect the nectar for honey.

We're living in an increasingly toxic planet; we need to take action now.

The bees are vitally important to the survival of us as a species. The bees go so do humans.

I wish I could raise bees and a few other animals, however, I have no land and live in a populated town!

They are part of our environment. Without them as with many if not most, life as we know it would change for the worse. More people dying of cancer etc etc you get the BIG PICTURE here?

Oh, it is of vital importance..
Besides the honey... which has so many healing properties..
Well, ecosystems are complex, possibly too complex for us to be able to understand all the connections and actions and interactions that takes place within them.
Now, with bees and honey bees in particular we know that over one-third of our food supply relies upon them for pollination services and we know that pollination is essential for the reproduction of the plants the bees service.

The honey bee is a major pollinator of many of our food crops, almonds, apples, avocados, blueberries, cantaloupes, cherries, cranberries, cucumbers, sunflowers, watermelon and many other crops all rely on honey bees for pollination.
So if honey bees disappear and we do not find replacements that can do the work they do then foods that we take for granted will decrease in supply and increase in price.
The main reason that the honey bees is important for our world is as simple as this; if the honey bee does not pollinate the crops, the crops do not grow and produce the food that gets harvested and brought to the store where we buy it and bring it home to feed ourselves and our families.

So true Loukia. If we lose Bees, almost everything tht we eat that comes from a plant will be gone, due to they being the ones that pollenate the flowers in order for the trees to flower and therefor 'fruit'.
To live on this planet is a PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT!!
Wake up peeps!!....there aint no other planet we can inhabit.

Imidacloprid. Spray it on lawns. It goes throgh the plants and appears in the pollen of clover. The bees take it back to the hive. Organic plant based pesticides have been banned on the basis of research of the same kind of people that said imidacloprid was safe. Which reminds me of something I once heard "Reseachers often find in favour of those who fund them".
