What your produce section would look like without Bees...

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Next time you see a honey bee going about its rounds, you may want to think of this photo:

    Thx, Sparkers for reading and commenting!
    I love bees and would keep them but they're not allowed in our HOA due to liability issues.

    Thanks for the information! My great niece and family have a small farm in Oregon and several bee hives. They also raise goats. We had our family get together out there so saw all the activity. Wish I lived close enough to get honey from them.

    Bees are so important to our food supply. When
    we had the big drought here, we couldn't even
    buy honey and the price of what was available
    skyrocketed. I am lucky that my cousin has a
    bee hive in inner city Brisbane and always gives
    me some honey. It is so good to get the real stuff.
    I enjoyed the link Mzz, than you for posting it. (:

    It's worrying that they are decreasing in numbers.

    Hi Sparkers!

    Thanks for looking and reading!
    Morticia that's so cool about your bees.
    I am glad that they removed them safely... unfortunately some bee
    companies come out and spray them with pesticides. Very sad.

    DJ I learned something tonite, I looked up oranges and apples and discovered they are both "self pollinators" meaning they don't need bees to set fruit! Who Knew? Prolly Monsanto who will be finding ways to make all fruits and veggies self pollinating! LOL

    Aquagirl, there are several theories as to why bees are endangered. The phenomena is called "colony collapse". The one's I've heard are mites, GMO crops, viruses, pesticides.

    Thx everyone who read and commented. A friend of mine sent me this photo and I just had to share it with my friends here at Spark.

    Bee good!

    It is remarkable.

    Don't you wonder why this has been happening since this period of time. Any ideas? emoticon

    I think that the stores would be more bare than that because the citrus and tomatoes also depends on the bees too

    We came home one day to find a huge migrating hive in a tree over our drive way. Here you can call local bee keepers and they will immediately come and get the hive they are so valuable. We make sure we don't use anything to harm our bees.
