The Benefits of Honey
By not foraging for food in the wild as bees would naturally do, they are exposed to crop herbicides and pesticides. With the stress of moving frequently, being robbed of food (honey), and exposure to chemicals is it any wonder that their numbers are decreasing?
The honeybee is not a U.S. native species. There are 20,000 to 30,000 other bees that are native, but only the honeybee produces honey. By striving to increase the populations of only honeybees, we are destroying the biodiversity of our ecological systems.
