BEEKEEPERS BATTLE ‘PERFECT STORM’

Chemical pesticides, viruses, mites and many other problems have unleashed “the perfect storm” against honeybee populations worldwide. But beekeepers are fighting back in a valiant attempt to stave off the disastrous bee population decline.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, honey-producing colonies have experienced a population drop of more than 60 percent in the past 60 years. The United Kingdom’s honeybee population has halved in recent years, with declines also reported in the Middle East, Asia and other parts of Europe.

WIDE ANGLE: Bees on the Brink

Aside from ecosystem issues, the problem warrants human attention because 70 percent of the crop species that feed 90 percent of all people in the world require bees for pollination.

Comment by Adamantine:

The bee population may still be a problem. Without going overboard I suggest people learn from the Mormons who believe in storing some supplies of food as well as money for the future. We may be in for difficult times even if not the very end of times.

  1. I attest from the heart that I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am not a Mormon. With even more certainty I can also attest to the fact that I have stored up a sufficient amount of food, water, medical supplies, and other daily human needs in order to be able to take care of myself and others. Will my efforts be in vain? Maybe. Maybe not. Only time will tell.

    lol, I just had to post this and be difficult in mentioning that not only Mormons are preparing for eventualities that may or may not come in the future.

    Shoot, I happen to know a few people who have no faith or trust in Jesus (I lift them up to the Lord often trust me) who are buying major amounts of food, bullets, supplies to get them through in the event of a societal collapse.

    Many know that things are out of balance in the world. Christians know that we may be part of a chosen generation to witness and be included in the “catching up into the coulds where we will forever be with the Lord.” Come quickly Lord Jesus. Amen
