It’s almost spring! That means the bees come out. If you see a huge cluster of bees, call a beekeeper. Do not call a bee exterminator please. The bees are not hostile. They have no eggs or honey to defend when you see them like this.
They’re stopping for a quick break.
Please don’t spray them. Contact a beekeeper and they will come out and take them! Swarms will soon be popping up across the state! They’re just looking for new homes, let a beekeeper rehome them for you!
SAVE THE BEES!
(You can Google or search Facebook for beekeepers in your area.)
This is a honey bee. The pollen on her legs is from dandelions. Her tongue is sticking out due to what killed her that was on the dandelions. It’s spring, dandelions are the bees first food.
This bee is dead from weed killer spread on what we see as weeds, but what nature sees as food. Please don’t spray for weeds until you see the blackberries blooming. In this area, weeds, flowers and fruit trees are bees only source of food until middle of June. There are FAR more weeds than flowers or fruit trees, so it’s their only food source.
You have a garden? You need bees You like to eat FOOD? You need bees. You like beautiful sweet honey? You need bees. You like wild flowers stop’n soil erosion. You need bees. You want the world as we know it to survive? You need bees.
In the industrial ‘development’ I work in, they spray toxins on the grass and bushes quite often. I find bees all the time walking circles and I know they are neurologically damaged and will die.
The poisoning of this planet MUST STOP.
Note from a bee lover:
Just this year, not a single bee – and we used to be swarming with them every year. Planting will not help dead bees. Have to prevent all the ways they are being killed, which may include, uh, ‘geoengineering’ the sky.
