The legitimacy of the claim that our bee population is waning is up in the air. Data and opinion about the subject are mixed. I hope the bee-pocalypse is just hype, but if it isn’t, we’re in trouble, and we should do everything we can to protect our beloved bees.
Bees are our lifeline to a quality existence on earth. They were here before us and they will be here long after we’re gone, unless we inadvertently change this fact.
Humans and animals depend on bees. From food to medicine, bees are vital to our health and well-being. Without bees there would be no flowers. I do not want to live in a world without flowers; do you? I’m positive your answer is no.
When it comes to food, bees are responsible for pollinating most of the flowering crops we depend on daily. Without them, these crops would not exist. Crops like apples, asparagus, avocados, blueberries, broccoli, celery, cherries, citrus of all kinds, cranberries, cucumbers, kiwis, and melons are those that rely on bees for survival.
In order to maintain our bee population, we need to become like bees: worker bees on the job for our queen—planet earth. As worker bees, it’s our job to provide and protect. It’s our job to keep our queen alive and healthy, adorned with life-giving plants and pristine, thirst-quenching water.
