Help The Honey Bee

I'm not sure how many of you are aware of the growing problem with the honey bee. First of all, are you aware of all the other foods that bee's pollinate, that we rely on, not to mention all the by-products that come from honey.
There is something called CCD that is causing the bee population to become non-existent. To find out more on this problem, go to 'info@honeybeesanctuary.org. There is a short explanation about this problem and how you can help.

Have you read "Bee Keeping for Dummies"? Excellent book! Plant a wild flower packet or two in your area. Or a garden with a varity of plants. But also be aware that some flowers like Rhododendron are highly toxic plants & can create posionus honey which the bees eat, so go easy on those plants. A few here & there may give them some limited exposure to the toxins, but spread in very lite doses around the hive probably wont do harm but dont plant too many please

The scary part is whole population of bees just disappear with very few dead ones to be found, to work with. I don't think its ccd, I think its because we industrialized the farms to one crop or the other there just not diversified as they used to.. where the bees had options to choose from. that and feeding to much sugar water. In other words junk food,
unfortunate ally the us corporate scum bags won’t wake up until its to late. Their own greed will kill themselves.
