“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
I hope it's not too late to make changes. It's heartbreaking to realize what we have done to this planet and its inhabitants 😔 including ourselves.
It's not like we really need bees or anything like that. I'm sure the government will send a couple hundred billion on a solid idea to fix issue. Sadly the study to grow hives will be complete 50 years after the last bee dies and 3 times over budget but by then we will all be dead and gone. On the bright side no more bee stings.
put no hunting & killing endangered, critically endangered & vulnerable animals signs in English & different languages & make forestry, logging, mining, quarrying, chemistry, harvesting, landfills & urbanization sustainable & rusty patched bumblebee hunting & killing & endangered, critically endangered & vulnerable animal hunting is 100% illegal & rusty patched bumblebee & endangered, critically endangered & vulnerable animal products are illegal to import & export in USA & the Philippines & make farming organic, humane & sustainable & protect your crops from pests without killing the pest & replant red clover flowers :)
STUPID PEOPLE - Government Funded Bee Biosphere filled with blooms year round . The only time the bees can get out is when new queens are born . New queens are given their own hives & sold to highest bidders .
Meh.... coolest bees I have had to deal with. They can land on you and not be jerks.
Not like those mother fucking hornest and yellow jackets... why can't they go extinct...those sons a bitches!
Doesn't most bees around the world have a disease now cause of pesticides? I hear the only places bees are doing good is on islands where farmers don't use pesticides
The next article on FB under this one in my feed is about the Pentagon's new drone swarm. I guess we're just replacing the bees with robotic killing machines. I'll take the bees please
Mission : PLANT MORE FLOWERS! 💐
JUST DO IT!...And if you can create a house for them create one...please even tho...I'm a filipino and I don't live in US I still care about them... I love Nature...Please save mother earth..and Nature..
Our greediness and self involved attitude will be our demise unless we WAKE UP! Bees are here to pollinate our gardens, our farms, our produce so that we can eat!! We are letting others play with the food that was created perfectly as it was intended! We are allowing others to take the water that was here before ANY man and put a price tag on it! We are making ourselves and our children ill by feed prepared foods filled with God knows what..then giving them shots or medicines to cure an illness that again is man made!! We throw out perfectly good food rather than give it away to those that would benefit?? We feed the needy in other countries slop instead of aiding them in growing what would benefit them in the long run ( actually if we didn't rape their countries and leave them in destroyed lands and homes they wouldn't NEED the help)
I seen a documentary on how wildlife in Vietnam were wiped of existence and began a whole new world of creatures and animals. Food for thoughts 🤔
Just gotta trim down on the human population is all. Gotta thin the herd.
It's a sign that the Schumann frequency of Earth is changing preventing the bees from creating their zero-point gravity bubbles which enable them to fly. They find it harder to match the higher resonances that are now stronger within the bands of 10-15Hz instead of what they've been accustomed to of 7.8Hz.
We have too many grass lawns. We should all plant some of our yards with meadow flowers. Go to Lowe's and get a seed packet now and spread them out. Just think, beautiful flowers, less yard to cut, and food for bees.
I have a wooden fence full of bumblebees that hibernate there every winter for over 10 years now. I let them live there, they keep the wasp and other more aggressive bees away. I have easily two dozen bees that live inside the thick wooden fence in my backyard. I'm thinking about building a new hive for them nearby since they will eventually run out of space or the fence falls apart from being old and full of tunnels they have dug throughout the years. They benefit my garden and keep wasp and others away from my yard.
Bees are safe! Honey cures allergies, and colds. Beware of herbicides and pesticides, spray sugar solution, gets the ants workng to remove bugs.
In my area they sleep in dirt and then wake up to get busy in the right season and at this movie theater they were in the garden outside of it and the ones waking up were being continuously stepped on by people walking by on the pavement and no one was even noticing that they were all being killed because they are so small and people are so careless they could be stepping on a rare fucking coin and it wouldnt be any differnt. We dont need polar bears or Elephants but we need bees and if bees do go extinct not only are we the dubest fucking species in the history of the planet and know that but continue being it but i will be happy to be dead at the end of this century when there is no fruits or any other stuff bees make possible.
The greed industry is killing everything and everyone. Excuses of more we need more... Has been costing the world so much and yet ignorance is claimed. The homemade items, the recycling, you make to run your home might not be perfect, however, I can say we have been trying to make changes for a few years. You adapt.
Bumblebees, unlike honey bees, are ground dwellers. They nest in the ground and will overwinter in the ground. Please consider that when you till/turn and mulch your garden. Please consider leaving a corner of your garden to be "natural"... no weeding, no planting. We concentrate on providing nectar sources (a good thing).. however, we need to make sure we provide nesting sites. Artificial nesting sites are usually unsuccessful. A patch of natural garden is enough. (( I had bumble bees living in my ever growing but never used pile of grass and yard clippings. )
If Monsanto products remain on the selves of the stores I am sure the bumblebees because people are not educated enough to know what they are using or they are too lazy to educate themselves!
✨🙏✨💔✨😪✨. Check Roundup & what is it poisoning??? Cancer in humans , killing bees that live on flowers, poisoning water & fish, chemicals from oil, companies, & sprays that are put on crops to kill weeds & bugs??? This is killing both the good & the bad!!!
Please try to protect them until the world government find this an important & vital information that the bees & frogs keep the fruit & Vegetables on our food chain!!!! 💔✨😪✨🙏
