The cold hard truth is that if we don’t look out for the bees we will suffer in the long term. The thought of a dystopian world comes to mind when I think about the death of and effect of bees dying would have on our planet.
They are just as a part of our Eco-system as we are.There has also been evidence of bees dying after being infected with a pesticide from weeds and flowers that were apparently not the target of spray. van Engelsdorp goes onto say; “It’s not clear whether the pesticides are drifting over to those plants but we need take a new look at agricultural spraying practice.”
In a conversation I had with a former bee keeper I asked him to tell me what he’s learned from the bees, he replied by saying; “They have taught me how important it is to live as a community, they operate as one, and give their lives for each other. Together they sustain life.”
Just some food for thought!
