Yeah, I know.
The bees are technically the “pollinators” but…
In the past few years, the plight of the honeybee has captured headlines around the world. Maybe that’s why you’re reading this right now instead of alphabetizing that lint collection.
Honeybees are top of mind for more people than ever before – and rightly so.
According to a 2005 study, the estimated economic value of insect pollination worldwide was $217 Billion (US), representing about 9.5% of the total value of agricultural crops produced for human consumption. And this doesn’t include the value of seeds produced, non-human food production (like cattle feed) and the sweet result of all that hard work – honey.
But the “girls” couldn’t do that all by themselves – not on the scale we need. That’s where you come in.
Whether you’re a commercial beekeeper who’s been trucking tens of thousands of colonies from farm to field for thirty years – or you’re an urban newbie, totally freaking out ’cause you know that cluster of bees hanging off the traffic light is YOURS…
be proud…this one’s for you.
