Honey bees are so cool. Truly. I think they are such amazing creatures. I don’t know where my fascination comes from. But I love anything about bees, decorated with bees, and associated with bees. A friend of mine took a class in college all about bees and she learned how to take care of her own beehive. I was jealous. I find honey and honeycomb fascinating and I like to try out all different varieties of honey.
Honey bees are extremely important creatures. They pollinate a lot of the crops we use and eat every day. Everything from fruit, nuts and vegetables depend on honey bees to pollinate them. And unfortunately honey bees are in a crisis. Much of the world’s population of honey bees has died in the last few years. One of the main reasons this is happening is due to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), a strange occurrence where bees mysteriously leave their hives and die. Without honey bees much of the world’s food would be gone.
I’ve been doing some research myself and I encourage you all to do the same and support companies that donate money to honey bee research! Also creating a garden in your backyard that attracts bees is another great thing you can do. Here are some links you may find helpful.
And after you learn all about bees, show your love for them with the following products.
