My neighbor has kept bees for years, and the above supers are from his collection of hives. Charles is an advocates for bees and knows their value to us all.
We must keep the environment safe for the honeybees. They are like the canary in the mine. Even if they didn’t do anything else but supply us with the fruit of their labor, like in those 3 pound jars above, that would be enough, but they are also vital in their role as pollinators.
“…….there have been a number of reports in the media about the mysterious disappearance of large numbers of honey bees called colony collapse disorder. This has many growers concerned about how they will continue to be able to pollinate their crops. Now more than ever, it is critical to consider practices that will benefit pollinators by providing habitats free of pesticides, full of nectar and pollen resources, and with ample potential nesting resources.”
There is magic in those jars.
