SAVE THE MOTHER FUCKING GOD. DAMNED. BEES.
|🐝BUZZ ALERT🚨| Did you know our bees are in a bit of a sticky situation? And no, we’re not just talking about honey. Since 2006, there has been a drastic increase in the disappearance of honey bee colonies in North America- about 25-30% each year. It’s called Colony Collapse Disorder, and there’s a similar phenomenon occurring with bumble bees, who are another important pollinator for many crops we consume on a daily basis. 🌿⠀
Aside from the foods we eat, the impact bees have on our environment runs much further than you can imagine. These little superheroes play a vital role in our global ecosystem, with more plant, animal and insect species relying on them than we can count! 🌎 ⠀
The fact of the matter is, bees need our help. They might be tiny in size, but they carry a huge responsibility on their wings! Click the #linkinbio

If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.🐝 🔊Maurice Maeterlinck, The Life of the Bee
My find just now....a tired Bumblebee. With a little love and replenished energy drop of part water and sugar this wee garden helper flew off to forage again xx
Look out and after our precious wildlife for they truly do help us. No matter how small they may appear, they do huge things for our planet xx
Big fat carpenter bees love larkspur.
Es sind die kleinen Momente im Leben, die unglaublich glücklich machen.
Where could these British beauties be today?? The posies are definitely getting bigger as the week goes on! ☺️🇬🇧💐#britishflowersweek
I’m so in awe of the honeybee- hardworking, organized, persistent. Today we harvested our first honey of the season. Fresh, raw honey at the HR Farmers Market this Saturday!

In the last 5 years the bee population has dropped by 1/3. If bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, humans would have just 4 years left to live. This time of year bees can often look like they are dying or dead, however, they're far from it. Bees can become tired and they simply don't have enough energy to return to the hive which can often result in being swept away. If you find a tired bee in your home, a simple solution of sugar and water will help revive an exhausted bee. Simply mix two tablespoons of white, granulated sugar with one tablespoon of water, and place on a spoon for the bee to reach.

For gods sake people, save the bees. In the past five years bees have dropped by 1/3. Makes me so sad. I love bees and my family have tried to their part by starting up beekeeping, but after a few years they unfortunately got a disease and we had to burn down our hives, but for a little while we had the best honey and garden! There are so many ways you can help out, by planting some bee-friendly plants such as lavender, lilac and bee balm. Stop using pesticides! Scientists believe that this is a major cause to the bees dying. Don’t be scared of them either, they don’t want to hurt you! If you see a tired bee, go get some water and dissolve some sugar whilst they rest, they do so much work to keep us alive so give them a little treat. The weeds in your garden are good as well! If you can, go out and buy some honey from a local beekeeper! It’s so much yummier and you will be supporting both a local business and the local bees. Or just become a beekeeper and get your own honey! A lot of you know I’m super passionate about the subject so anything you can do to help out would be amazing, humans wouldn’t survive very long without bees!
Love the waggle dance - it’s amazing 😎the bees who’ve found good forage do a ‘dance’ in a kind of figure of eight to indicate the direction and distance of the forage so the other bees can find it - so clever!
It’s pollinator week! Celebrate by going to your local garden center and picking up something nice for the bees to eat. What do they like? Well, keep a close eye out at the garden center, and you might just find out 🌸🐝
