|Bees enjoy Wildflowers!|
|Raw Florida Honey|
With increased usage of chemicals and pesticides, humans are killing bees at an alarming rate. This is one of the many reasons I recommend you grow your veggies and fruits using organic methods. Companion planting is the simplest form of pest control and requires NO CHEMICALS!
According to Florida Dept of Agriculture:
"Colony Collapse Disorder, also known as Fall-Dwindle Disease, is of great concern to beekeepers worldwide. Beekeepers are reporting the sudden loss of adult bees in their colonies – few, if any, adult bees are found in or near the dead colonies. Queen and baby (brood) bees remain in the colonies, but the adults are not returning to provide food, so the colonies collapse or die. Over 22 US states reported significant colony losses in the fall of 2006. Similar reports are coming from Europe as well. Researchers are considering viruses, bacteria, fungi, weather, food loss, and other stresses as possible causes."
