This time of year, I'm happy that I'm not a bee. They are shivering a lot right now. There's snow on the ground again in Michigan after a brief warm up that brought in the New Year.

My province has a ban on cosmetic pesticides, so I have numerous different kinds of bees in my garden.

I have seen very few small-level hives 'collapse'. It mainly seems to be relegated to the very large commercial operations with sometimes thousands of hives on the back of flatbed trucks. In fact, I have not met one person who has a few hives and gathers their own honey have any problems with so-called ColonyCollapseDisorder.

There seems to be an awful lot of evidence against Bayer and its' chemical brew. . . and if even Germany has banned the use of their pesticide, Bayer's home turf, that seems pretty telling - along with France, Slovenia and parts of Italy?

Let us save our bees at all cost. They are vital for our existence.

I have hundreds of honey bees in my yard, but they are drinking my hummingbird's food and my hummers can't get to them. They chase the birds away.

Beekeeping isn't an endeavour that should be taken lightly. Too many unexperienced beekeepers give themselves the huge responsibility of taking care of honeybees. Their hives are delightfully intricate and it's wonderful to see what Mother Nature can show us through them.

Nutritionists have said for years, that there is no difference between honey and sugar. I didn't believe them, then, and I don't believe them, now.

Please, don't take my honey away!

Bees are so important to all of us; it's hard to believe any company would continue to distribute a product that so clearly is poison to bees. Then again, greed is greed. Pesticide is poison, and eventually it will become even more widespread in the ecological system. Hopefully it won't kill us all before the greedy ones get their act together.

If there is a serious plan to save honeybees, then you MUST start with Iraq! That bastard Saddam Hussein almost wiped them out with his chemical weapons, that now you'd rarely find an Iraqi child under the age of 15 who had tasted honey before!!!
Thats a serious, serious problem, and I know that because I saw Bee Movie XD (it was lovely, no?), and something must be done before its too late for their ecosystem.
