Colony Collapse Disorder – Bees Are Needed

Bees. You collected them in jars, enjoyed the very honey they produced, and scared your little sister with them. However, nothing is more scary than what could happen if we wiped bees off the face of the planet, but it is a very real threat with a new “phenomena” called colony collapse disorder.

The fact that I have fond memories of bees is disturbing when I stop and think about it. Memories are things from the past, that only now exist in the mind. If all I really have is memories, its becoming obvious that they are not nearly as prominent as they once were.

I can remember being on the farm and watching the bees buzz in around the plants and flowers and landing on them to get a smell. Or at least thats what I thought. Little did I know at the time that they were an integral force to the food supply across the world.

I personally never understood the fear of bees. After all, they never really seemed to be concerned with my presence. They were always just doing their thing, buzzing around, and seemingly attracted to flowers of all kinds. The last of their worries was what I was doing.

Unfortunately, bees have become a victim of what my fellow man is doing, and if unfettered, the end result is a scary prospect. To understand what I’m talking about, lets learn a bit more about these highly undervalued insects.

What is Colony Collapse Disorder?

Bee’s 101 tells us that they are primarily known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax. However, their most important role is pollinating flowering plants and are the major type of pollinator in ecosystems that contain them. In some estimates, up to a third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination, and most of this is done by bees. Thats a lot of weight to pull for these fuzzy little creatures.

Its pretty hard to pull that weight when you are being killed off by pesticides and having it covered up by the mainstream media as colony collapse disorder, a seeminlgy impossible phenomena to stop. Or at leasts thats what they would have you believe.

As usual, the truth lies in the actions of rabid corporations and government who want nothing more than to “save” the food supply, so the most logical act is to spray noxious chemicals on the plants to save it from disease and unfriendly critters who want nothing more than to much a few petals to satisfy their little tummy.

Unfortunately, these “good intentions” do the exact opposite, and threaten to wipe out the very insect that inadevertently controls a third of our worlds food supply. Ouch.

If that wasn’t enough of an environmental wedgie, the very corporations making these chemicals walk away with millions of dollars in profits, at the expense of the bee, and the food supply. The very thing they are supposedly trying to protect!

I like bees. I like honey. I also like food, as it tends to keep me alive and well. Bee pollen is widely known as one of the most complete, nutritious superfoods on the planet! I know myself that a shot of bee pollen in my smoothie everyday is a perk I don’t want to do without.

How can you help save bees from these corporate cronies?

Don’t believe the bunk. Colony collapse disorder is about as legitimate as a politicians PR Department. Stand up for your food supply if its important to you and check out the online petition and sign and save the bee population from colony collapse disorder.

Remember the old saying “none of your beeswax?”. Well, it doesn’t apply here. Make it your beeswax and create a buzz and get our bees back.

Before its too late.
