Beekeeping: An Earth Day Tribute. As a beekeeper, Earth Day is always a special day for me. It’s usually right around this time, mid-to-late April, when all the flowers, trees, and plants come to life and burst with color. Earth Day is also special as it’s a celebration of all nature’s beauty and wonder, which is a welcome return after a long, cold winter. Every year the day is buzzing, as everyone is so happy to be outdoors, in the sun and close to nature.
How Do Bees Find Pollen? This one question leads to many other bee-related questions such as: “Why Do Bees Collect Pollen?” and “What Do Bees Do With Pollen?” First, bees collect pollen to eat, as it is their source for protein. One of the bee’s super powers is its sense of smell. Bees will use their sense of smell to find blooming plants that contain pollen and nectar. After a foraging bee delivers its payload to waiting bees inside the hive, if the food source where she got it is good, the forager bee will tell her hive mates its location. Called the waggle dance, a worker bee will do a dance to tell her sisters about the location of a food source and gives directions for how to get there.
There is no one single cause that we can point to and blame for killing off the world’s bee population. Instead, there are a combination of factors that are having a deadly impact on our honeybees. Known as the “Four P’s” — Parasites, Pathogens, Poor Nutrition, and Pesticides.
Since more and more beekeepers are using oxalic acid to treat for mites, it’s important to understand the research behind the treatments so as to use it safely and effectively.
