Bee Update

March 23, 2009 at 4:05 am 2 comments

Have been chatting to a long time apiarist in rural regions

and asked about the bee situation, in case it was an

exaggerated thing, but he confirmed that without bees,

humanity would not survive.  He also explained that

bees never swarm at people, they only follow the 

command of the Queen Bee and do her bidding.  This is

why bees appear so “busy” all the time, and make

“beelines” for certain flowers or trees.  They are simply

following the beat of nature, so be kind to bees!

    There is a bush of some sort of purple flower near my office. Over the years, it is a bush that is usually alive with working bees. For the last two years, I’ve noticed very few bees, BUT, I just noticed that right now it has many bees working. I am wondering if the bee problem is resolving itself for the better? Let’s hope.

    Nice one, Lori. I too have noticed many bees around my lavender. They are working there almost all the time. I think what you say is really heartening, so glad you mentioned this! Let’s stay in hope, I agree.
