"If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live."Einstein said that. And I believe it to be true. It was also re-affirmed by the years of work by Rudolf Steiner.
And the growing concern that the bees population is a huge problem.
It is believed that the bees are responsible for 75% of the crops to produce, because they need pollinators. They cause the flowers to prouce, seeds, grains, fruits and vegetables. Without the bees, there would be no mangoes, apples, cherries, strawberries, honey..... and our livestock produce would suffer too, because they can't eat grass.... and so goes the cycle.
To put it simply, without the bees, the human race would be next to be extinct.
There's also the problem that the bees are pollinating plants that are GMOs, and all the chemicals and pesticides used in farm crops. That's why they are having problems with the bee population.....
Why am I sharing this now? Because, just today a swarm of bees came to our house, turns out they have a previous hive somewhere here and a colony plans to stay here for the moment..... and original thought would be, to exterminate them and that they are pests... but no, they are not.
so, please please.... let's live with them... we are supposed to have a coexitsting relationship with them.
Kudos to all Bee Keepers I know, Mr Nicanor Perlas (Iloilo) and Tito Leo Avila.
