“If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live." -Albert Einstein
I have an entire wall of a 200 year old house in Tennessee full of them. Beekeepers will be out in the Spring to move them to hives and scrape the honey out of the walls. This will be the third time in thirty years we have had to do this.
We really need to push the awareness of the blight the Honeybee is in! Please make your family aware and plant the plants that will provide nectar the bees need.
Ways we can help: "These include planting native flowers, limiting or avoiding pesticides, and fostering natural landscapes and leave grass and garden plants uncut after summer to provide habitat for overwintering bees.” Listed in article
I planted native plants in my Colorado urban landscape and made them a home from a broken pot. Hope upon hope we can save them!!!
Some of these comments are truly ridiculous. The pesticides cannot "just go", or all of our crops are going to fail. If you propose a drastic change, you need to have a solution to the problems that your changes will cause. How do you propose that we protect our crops from insects, fungal pathogens and competition with weeds in a safe and effective manner without pesticides in a way that allows us to produce enough food to feed 7.5 billion people? I'll be waiting right here for an answer.
Pollination is a strange symbiotic process that we have to protect from endangerment. It's a lot more important than most people realize.
If our Earth is to continue to survive, the bottom line is this....we need to stop killing off the bees....people need to stop with all of those pesticides, and ban its use......pure and simple...take away the pesticides, and pray it gives the bees a chance to recover.....
... and we know what must be done to change this and protect our bees and the worlds food supply. Those pesticides that are killing the bees must be banned! Money is not important... food supply is! #wecanteatmoney
These are "native" bees. For my friends in Wisconsin, these bees are excellent pollinators of apples and cranberries. Please consider providing habitat for them. Go to xerces.org for info. Thanks
