    THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - So much so that Bees have been placed on The Endangered Species List in the United States.

    Start-up companies have been formed that travel around America pollinating strategic food crops.

    If you are a Melittologist or know of someone, this might be a good little business to get into.

    Well this is a really great article @Javier beBee very informative...nice to see you have taken up the baton so to speak! I must mention that although these products were banned for use on flowering crops by the EU in 2013 it was opposed by the UK government, the NFU (National Farmers Union) then succeeded in obtaining a temporary lifting of this ban in 2015, however this year's application for a temporary lift of the ban was rejected, the NFU have said they will continue to apply for emergency use of these pesticides...and I'm sorry to say they will probably be successful, but what of the future now that the UK has left the EU, with the opposition by the UK government to this ban in 2013 they will at some point make there own decisions whether to keep the ban on these pesticides in place or not!

    Great Post! I love my bees. Unfortunately when I say "my" bees I don't mean that I have my own hives (I and my son want to but we aren't allowed). Where I live we have to have permits and government permission to own our own hives. Even then they regulate and control every aspect of ownership and can destroy your hives if you don't do things the way they tell you to. They can even destroy your hives because of encroachment into "industrial waters". The bees are in trouble that's for sure.

    Buen artículo, @Javier beBee!! Ahora toca poner en práctica todo lo que está en nuestras manos para salvar a las abejas, desde plantar plantas "amigables" para las abejas hasta crear una fundación para protegerlas, tratando de influenciar para que se prohiba el uso de pesticidas perjudiciales y se fomenten los cultivos ecológicos.

    Para mí, lo que es un signo de que las empresas deberían participar es que, además de ser respetuoso con el medio ambiente, la agricultura ecológica se ha demostrado que es rentable.

    Me encantaría que desde beBee se fomentara la protección de las abejas, ya que además de ser nuestro símbolo, son cruciales y esenciales para mantener el actual ecosistema.

    Thank you for sharing such an important message Emilia. When I was pursuing my Environmental Science degrees I did a lot research on Colony Collapse Disorder. and it horrifying what is happening to the bee populations. On a positive note; there are some developing nations that are building their honey production. This had the added benefit of increasing bee populations. Since some of these regions are not as yet subjected to the high use of agriculture chemicals the bees are able to remain healthy and reproduce. It is sad to think that we may eventually have to have 'no chemical' zones in order to build bee populations, which would then need to be transported to agriculture areas to pollinate the crops. That is already occurring in the US. . California must import bees to pollinate their Almond and flower crops.

We use organic on our veggies too. Bee's are vital to our ecosystem just like brown bats which became diseases and we've lost most of them in the NE States. I forget the name of the disease?

    #15 Why thank you Rebecca! Though I would have some stiff competition for Queen on this site. So many brilliant Queens to be found here.

    My nephew is allergic as well. He was stung for the first time while visiting me (about 5 years old). When he suddenly said he wanted to take a nap (he hated naps) and laid down and covered up with a blanket (it was 90 degrees outside) I got suspicious and went over and lifted his shirt. He was covered in welts. It took us all of 10 minutes to rush him to the hospital and he 'slept' until they gave him a shot of adrenaline. He was actually unconscious. He still carries an Epi Pen and this has been many many years.

We discovered he is very allergic to the sting of the honey bee. Consequently, my son now carries an Epi Pen. Nevertheless, we still love and value bees!

    #8 While I own a tripod, I rarely use it. I have found a stance that works well for me, and the Vibration Reduction on my Nikkor and Tamron lenses works well with the fastest shutter speed I can handle. The clip on macro lens was one of those generic brands and will probably break with too much use. It also had a wide angle adapter but I find my phone camera already has a great field of view.

    #10 'Reprimand' in private but 'praise' and 'teach' in public. The nudging done by @Ali Anani is in fact 'teaching' benefiting not only @Jeet Sarkar but many others who commit such slips. I see this as a great learning opportunity for those who are sincere and are willing to improve their writing skills. Jeet's response is highly commendable and a great example for other learners.

    #4 Great Quote, may I ask you to edit it one more time so it is: "..…They are Honey bees, not human beings! They won’t punish me if I sacrifice my luxury to provide someone’s necessity!" And yes, you shall be an Author in no time. #6 #7 My brain automatically edits TV commercials so I too, am distracted by errors in punctuation, etc. #8 Great perfection seen in time's travels here in the Comments, as the bees conglomerate to elevate one of their own to higher levels! #9 Exquisitely stated, as 🐝@Ali Anani is one-of-a-Bee!🐝#11 🐝We all appreciate you, Master-Bee-in-the-Making..🐝#16 You say it all, dearest @Franci Eugenia Hoffman. This piece, in its entirety with all the Comments, is a perfect example of beez working together in unison...gently prodding one another along. I am grateful to have you all here. I leave you with a ((hug)) and a solid hand shake (👌🏾) and all my love.

    #15 I agree with you @Ali Anani. I felt your handling of the situation was quite appropriate and tactfully done. Everything that I have read by you, whether a post or a comment reflects your kindness and sincerity.

    #14 Dear @Franci Eugenia Hoffman- I have been exposed to similar situations and have been criticised in public. We are not attempting to hurt; on the contrary, we are to offer little help whenever we can. I could have deleted the comments that we "like assaults", but opted to keep them. I learnt from them, and I am thankful to those people who benefited me. The tone of criticism is vital; empathy with criticism are cure for me. I appreciate your comment greatly. . .

I would expect the same thing from you if I had written a piece and felt it needed another pair of eyes. @Charles David Upchurch makes a valid point and in a situation other than the one at hand, a private message may be more appropriate. I feel all is well here. Close

    #9 Thank you dear @Charles David Upchurch and I admit having hesitated so much to write my comment in public. However; I found that the same buzz was published on LI as well. I felt that the written buzz is so worthy to be disrupted by nagging errors. @Jeet Sarkar messaged me thanking for the corrections. I was not criticizing as much as I was complimenting. The core idea is beautiful, but the dressing needed little "nudging". I shall admit that in another case I wrote privately to Jeet because it was a more of private issue. I also believe the intentions if right, people shall be more understanding.

    #1 @Jeet Sarkar are you okay with receiving writing feedback in public comments, as @Ali Anani has so kindly done, here? I generally find that writers, being human, are more receptive to proofreading and editing critiques when they are delivered privately and not put on display for all to see. On the other hand, it might be that if another reader and commenter could ever be as kind and as diplomatic as dear Ali is, maybe it would not matter so much whether it is public or private.

    Perhaps, there was a mistake or two (per the discussion by our beloved @Ali Anani and @Anees Zaidi). From my point of view the idea is brilliant. The bee and the ant having a discussion is priceless. For my reading pleasure, I would like to see indirect dialogue mixed in with the direct dialogue. You are a lucky man to have Ali and Anees as your mentors. Soon you will be writing masterpieces.

    #6 Yes, I second your invitation dear @Anees Zaidi to the very promising writer @Jeet Sarkar. With little trimming here and there he shall be at an elevated level. I felt bad that minor mistakes were taking away a lot of an interesting buzz.

    I salute you my dear brother @Ali Anani. You are doing the things which no one thought of doing. A noble task indeed. You are nurturing a small plant passionate to grow big. Dear @Jeet Sarkar your thoughts are rich. Keep writing and please do a thorough review before hitting the publish key. I see a great writer in you.

    Nice to share the idea about protecting and saving bees!! Here is my article about that (in spanish) talking about the creation of a fundation by crowdsourcing to save them and to be conscious about their importance for our nature, more than being our symbol.

    #2 Oh I cannot afford Manuka, I think I will just avoid getting wounded.

    #1 @Dean Owen - honey is absolutely the best for wounds - it has been all I've used for at least a decade. It does need to be raw, not the commercial corn-syrup substitute stuff. You might be able to get the really good stuff, as it comes from your corner of the globe - Manuka honey from New Zealand.

    Great buzz, @Fiona Pagett - it is really of utmost priority for each of us to do what we can to keep wild honey bees as happy as possible, because our food supply is truly at risk, if we don't figure out what is threatening their survival.

    Who would have known. Seems counter intuitive to put honey on wounds. With all these posts on bees, we should all be qualified to earn a Masters in Apiology pretty soon. Great buzz Fiona.
