It wasn’t long ago that I was having a conversation with a friend of mine at the pool and I saved a bee from drowning. We watched as he dried off a bit and sunned himself up in preparation to take flight. We finished a few beers and before you know it the lil guy had taken off headed west into the sunset. We started talking about bees and how recently their population has been on the decline. And how important they are to agriculture and in the long run, us. One of those “damn! we as a species suck” chats… I came across this article and wanted to share…It gives me hope living here in NorCal. As for the rest of the country….not so much!
*A tip for allergy sufferers….get some local honey and eat it up. The bees milk local flowers and thus ingesting their honey introduces your system to the local pollen….Thanks Bees!
