Global Famine coming to a State near you!
It is raining in the Big Country today, not much bee work to do. In the beginning Man was given a job. The job was to keep and guard a garden. The garden man was to keep and guard is called earth. There would not be a garden if the honey bees were not here. As bee populations continue to fall, so does our ability to produce food. Remember supply and demand. Lower food supplies results in higher food prices. Honey bees are the only insect that produces food for humans. Some insects are food, like grasshoppers. Yet the honey bee not only produces food for us but is directly responsible for the 40% of the food we eat.
Global famine coming
One Honey Bee colony will have as many as 50,000 worker bees that go out to pollinate our crops. That is a huge work force and still people want to want to open a can of Wal-mart death when the bees show up in the yard. I had a call just a few days ago. The woman said that they bought a house in Dec. and did not know about the bees living under her floor. She wanted to know how much to save them. The house was a pier and beam with a three foot crawl space. The colony was located 35 feet from the crawl space entrance. That means I would have to crawl 35 feet with all my equipment and fully dressed in my bee suit to the location of the colony, Capture the colony remove the brood and all the comb then crawl back. I estimated about four maybe five hours to do the job properly. I gave her my rate and she quickly stated " I can get an exterminator to spray them for $65!" It is this total disregard for life that is causing the coming famine. It is like cutting your throat to spite your belly. When you spray one colony of bees you are killing not only the target colony, You killing the other colonies that are with-in three miles. Here is how it works. When a colony of bees is killed or weakened other bees come to rob the honey. If someone has treated the bees with a toxin that toxin gets in the honey. The other bee colonies in the area find the weakened or poisoned hive and rob the honey. Taking the contaminated honey back to their hive and feed it to their young killing them also. Yes, Global famine coming
You are not killing one colony of bees, You are killing several. And you are killing yourselves by destroying such a awesome pollinator. It is people like this that are causing the coming famine. I hope they have some food in storage!
