BEEUTIFUL BEES

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!”   🐝

    1. This is part of a letter of several I had sent to the EPA and other environmental regulatory agencies advocating for our Bees!

      “Bee populations are rapidly declining and neonic pesticides are a huge part of the blame. To make matters worse, Syngenta and Bayer, two big chemical corporations, are pushing Trump’s EPA to consider a plan to allow even more bee-killing pesticides to be used on 165 million acres of crops.” League of Conservation Voters, Inc

      Open space was for a time allowed to have vegetative growth to a height that allowed wildflowers, clover and even milkweed to grow again as had been the case over the years, giving many bee populations uncontaminated wild growth areas to use as way-points in their daily travels, gathering nectar and pollinating. Then a decision by a few bureaucrats to cut everything to the ground meant that the entire area would now be void of any ecological benefits for the bees and other plant dependent animals that in turn help us humans have a healthier better life!

      This is only one example that I mention here but I’ve seen many other similar problems and lack of concern by a small group of public officials that continue to allow damage to our environment at an unprecedented pace, which will go beyond the tipping point if it hasn’t already, if we as Americans don’t get more proactive in repairing and preventing damage to the Eco-system! By throwing these powerful chemicals into the mix it makes the problem 10 times worse; as I did witness damaged bees in my immediate area that had been exposed to weed and pest control products being used throughout the wider range. I don’t see how we can make progress in preventing the destruction of our environment and health or well-being unless we make a concerted effort to first eliminate these toxic agents from the environment, and then protect all ecosystems wherever possible on a large scale! I know you folks at the EPA will see all of this and do the right thing to protect and preserve, which I will thank you in advance for that!
