I wanted to mention I have grown to appreciate bees much more over the last 15 years when in my travels and around where I have my home bees began being impacted very negatively by mankind and started to diminish drastically. There are debates going on and numbers get manipulated but when considering the entire world food crop for human consumption one expert seems to be talking more realistic when he said; “Assuming that the major fruits, nuts and vegetables benefit from pollination, and that most animal food is from flowering plants requiring seed production (eg: alfalfa), that makes for about 55% of world food production benefiting from bees.”
But it is true that 90% of the fruits and nuts along with certain vegetables we enjoy here in America are pollinated most extensively by bees! Not to mention flowers and shrubbery; what a massive loss and problem it would be if bees disappear; we will see and feel greatly the consequences of that catastrophe if it occurs.
So, needless to say “I Love Bees!” LOL! Now I’m going to have breakfast a mixture of muesli, oat bran and rolled oats cereals with WALNUTS, BLUEBERRIES, STRAWBERRIES, BANANAS and HONEY; all the items in caps thanks to the BEE! And, you know the value of those fruits and nuts in a diet to keep us healthy and ward off disease. Take care and “Have a BEEUTIFUL Day!” 🐝
