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.
KEEP up the NECESSARY work! My nephew in Goleta - outside of Sta. Barbara raises them too...and is VERY concerned.
I wish I could raise bees and a few other animals, however, I have no land and live in a populated town!
Keep wishing. In one day...can be real.
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?
we cant keep covering everything in chemicals..the bees gift to us is medicine and food we need them they are just part of our system we loose them we loose ourselves. Life is in the balance.
Albert Eistein disait que si les abeilles disparaissaient, l'humain leur survivrait
L'humain ne leur survivraient que 4 ans, et disparaîtrait alors a son tour...
Honey is a natural healing remedy.
not if it has neurotoxins in it, sadly :(
This cause is important to us all!
Colony collapse is frightening...
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".
Well it hard to like anything that's getting to the bees but thanks for highlighting the problem - alas teh solution doesn't seem to be in my hands?
I keep bees. I love my bees. I worry about my bees. they are up against so much now. chemicals are killing all of us.
Food security for the world.
Bees populate over 80% of the everyday foods that we eat... this is no laughing matter... we truly would not have food if they disappear...
