DAY OF THE HONEY BEE
Today is the Day of the Honey Bee in Canada, let’s take a moment to celebrate these amazing creatures. Without them we would starve to death, that’s not an exaggeration. All of our fruits and veg plus the feed we use for meat animals depend on pollination.
Hold on to your hats folks because the Bees are in trouble. Colony Collapse is happening in Europe and North America and no one knows exactly why. Most studies show it’s a combination of Climate Change, pesticide use and illness, sort of a “perfect storm” in the Bee world. Bee keepers are working very hard to keep ahead of this wave of decline and our lives depend on it.
Take a moment today to think of the humble Honey Bee, buy some honey and support your local Bee Keepers.
