Our bees are bringing in a lot of pollen. Right now, the red maple trees are blooming. In March, the sugar maple trees and dandelions will begin blooming. Look at the large yellow clumps of pollen on their hind legs! A bee can carry about half her body weight in pollen! #honeybees #savethebees #backyardbeekeeping #beekeeping #beekeeper #ncbeekeepers

I love our hives. Can’t wait for the next round of honey, but in the meantime making our own beeswax wraps is so rewarding. #savethebees #homehives #zerowaste

The bees do not consume their pollen fresh. Instead, they take it into the hive and pack the granules into empty comb cells, mixing them with nectar and digestive fluids and sealing the cell with a drop of honey. Once processed in this way, the pollen remains stable indefinitely. Beekeepers call this form of pollen ‘perga’ or ‘bee bread’.

The $3 million dollar grant from the EPA has led the team of researchers at Monsanto to develop alternative strategies to “survive” an eventual honey bee Colony collapse disorder (CCD), a phenomenon that has been increasing in the past decade and that occurs when the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear, a situation that could “dramatically impact the world’s food supply”, admit experts “Since GE farming and neonicotinoid pesticides are here to stay, we first tried to modify the bees as to increase their immune system to these insecticides, with little or no success” admits the specialist. “Yet, we did not despair and eventually started testing on winged virgin queens and males of the ant species. Although ants usually lose their wings after the queen has been inseminated and starts to give birth to the new colony, genetic manipulation has produced a flying ant species that is strikingly similar to the common honey bee, and 50 times stronger to certain types of pesticides” he acknowledges, visibly enthused by the discovery. “Through genetic manipulations, we could eventually create a hybrid species that would have both the common honey bee’s pollinating characteristics. “ 😡😰🐝#savethebees #beethecure
