    In support of the wonderful Buzz about the humble bumble bee that has been occurring I thought I would offer the following link to those who really want to help limit the impact of Colony Collapse Disorder. The Natural Resource Defense Council has started a campaign to stop the use of neonicotinoids in the U.S. This pesticide has been banned in many European countries but the U.S. continues to import this bee killing chemical in large quantities, in addition to those companies who manufacture it here. Consider joining the NRDC campaign.

    Thanks, Pam. This is such an important initiative, as insecticides are a major piece of this puzzle and one we can easily put a stop to and measure the results.

    World Honey Bee DayAs a site where the users refer to themselves as Bees I believe it appropriate that we should align ourselves with efforts to protect the bee populations of the world. An environmental scientist by education I try to stay apprised of environmental...

    You know me, @Ken Boddie and @Pamela ๐Ÿ Williams, I'll share this post on several engineering hives because bees are nature's engineers and mathematicians. :-)

    #46 Thanks Devesh! Native plants are ALWAYS the best option for protecting Native animals and insects.
    I've created a Hive and I invite everyone to share suggestions for native plants to plant in their region of the world.

    That's a bee-autiful and insightful article. It's unbeelivable how much bees have to suffer because of our dependence on chemicals.

    Humans are a curious lot. Our proclivity toward self destruction seems boundless, even in the face of scientific evidence. We need to look no further than our President Elect's position on global warming for confirmation of this tendency. Thankfully, our ability to engineer our way back from the edge of ruin rivals our penchant for creating it. Back in the 1980's the destructive effect of chlorofluorocarbons on the ozone layer was a hot topic, which was addressed through a combination of legislation, scientific research, and new product development. So hope doth remain.

    The shocking collapse of bee colonies is a crisis that requires immediate attention. In my mind, this is an underpublicized predicament more pressing than global warming. Let's not wait for mass starvation to be the prompt for us to get serious about solving this looming disaster.

    Excellent post @Pamela ๐Ÿ Williams. Sharing forward.

    Plant local trees, esp fruit trees. The ecosystem around it, including bees will benefit from it.

    #43 Thanks Gert! I'm going to re-schedule on Paul's TweetPack

    #42 Buying local honey is an excellent idea! Writing companies that sell honey and asking them to ensure producers of other products aren't using these deadly pesticides on crops would be another great move.

    @Pamela ๐Ÿ Williams @Ken Boddie Shared on Twitter. Excellent "honey " for thought. Thank you Pam.

    Bee challenge accepted. Would buying more honey also work? Push up demand. If it did work, perhaps a campaign to champion honey instead of Nutella as Ferrero are staunchly defending their use of palm oil in Nutella and Orangutans are dying too!

    FYI: World Honey Bee Day for 2017 is August 19th. We should put the world out, share posts on this important subject (there are others, if anyone comes across them, share them as well)

    #37 And following from that: Share to Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and any other site that the Bees have a presence!
    thanks for resurrecting this post @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher!!
