Imagination of bygone days…

“Every summer, like the roses, childhood returns.” Marty Rubin….Sometimes, I can recall being a playful, imaginative child caught up in pretending games…I can connect to the memory, but not the emotions.

Honey Bees: Those Eusocial Bees Sacrifice

Interesting, if slightly technical looking at the social structure of bees and the ‘eusocial’ patterns of behavior (no I don’t totally get it after the first four paragraphs); and more importantly where are the honey bees going? “…figures released in spring 2010 show that, during the winter of 2010, the U.S. lost 34%, or just over a third of its managed honeybee colonies. Jeff Pettis: What’s unusual is that they’re dying in such high numbers and so rapidly, so it’s just this dramatic depopulation.

Pollination determines the life of flowers, fruits and crops. It is estimated that every third morsel we consume is a result of pollination. The honey bee is among the most effective pollinators. 90 per cent of pollination in cross-pollinated crops like oil-seeds, vegetables, fruits and cereals is aided by honey bees alone.   Shridharsimplysaid

Save The Honey Bees!!!!

bee 2

Saw honey bee expert on morning news re swarm in NYC. Interesting that each year or so, New Queen emerges and Old Queen takes half the hive and leaves. Scouts find new locations and Old Queen decides on site. Then a new hive is established. And, the process goes on and on. Unfortunately, honey bees are in decline and some of our food supply depends upon honey bees. This is an obvious habitat story worth tracking compared to some of the silliness put forth. Save The Honey Bees!!!
