You have probably heard about the bees being in trouble.  And, how we will not be able to grow food if we don't have bees!

"Forget the plight of the polar bear for a moment and consider the coming collapse of the $30 billion honey bee economy in the US.

Since 2006 honey bees responsible for pollinating more than 100 crops—from apples to zucchini—have been dying by the tens of millions. As a new report from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) details, scientists are still struggling to pinpoint the cause of so-called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and time is running out.

“Currently, the survivorship of honey bee colonies is too low for us to be confident in our ability to meet the pollination demands of U.S. agricultural crops,” the report states."

I am just as concerned with social change, the environment, protecting animals, and so much more.  I think that if I write about great information, then you will contact me if you want to do business together!

  • I am terrified of bees and could really live without them.  Just looking at that image was scary for me.  Something I have put up with since a small child.

    Without bees there is no honey and this is something we should all be concerned with. Honey is food and we definitely need those little bees to do there thing. Thanks for publishing this post to remind us how important bees are.

  • Great topic Bruce and Sally. I hear you loud and clear about the declining bee population. Chris and I lived in Canada for years and last year could not find many bees at all. We have returned back to NZ and I am glad to say over the summer there were plenty of bees to be found. It is certainly a worry and one to be taken seriously, if we have no bees we have no food, something I think a large proportion of the population have not given to much thought about. Thanks for your concern for our buzzy little bee friends. Regards Rhonda
