Stingless Bees. I was once called stupid and accused of being a liar at a local sunday market in Millbrae, California for talking about stingless bees! They do exist! Stingless bees are excellent pollinators of crops and flowers. They are known to visit the flowers of 90 crop species, and to be effective pollinators of 6 species (1), including mangos, macadamia nuts and watermelons, eggplants (aubergine) whilst contributing to the pollination of 60 other species, such as strawberries.
Today I totally got up close and personal with some bees. They're clever little devils and we should all be looking after their hardworking little butts. We need them to keep life on earth stable. Also their honey taste really good. Did you know that when they start to feel like their hive is in danger, they start eating their honey so they can transport it and place it elsewhere? What the hell? That's so clever. It's totally kind of mean that we just kind of take it off then when it means so much to them though. I guess this is why vegans don't eat honey. I should learn more about this. Was that a stream of consciousness of what? Stay tuned.

🐝🐝🐝Woohoo the bees are in their new hive! The hive is on a stand with ant protection! The hive is active and building! Dang this bee keeping is amazing. Can’t wait to taste my honey after the move 😍🍯🐝
For you help setting it all up and no bites in the move or lid lifting. We so got this bee keeping business hehe.
Tell me Gorgeous Souls what’s you favourite way to use honey? Don’t forget to book your floats so you don’t miss out on your time. Peace. Love. Smile. Kye.
Loves buzzy bees! 🐝 plays with them gets bitten and keeps going back for more! ♥️ #bees
Abu Umaamah (RA) narrated that:
The Prophet ﷺ said: “Whoever reads “Ayatul-Kursi”, after every obligatory prayer, nothing prevents him from entering Paradise except death (i.e. that he is still alive).” (An-Nasaa’ee, Ibn Hibbaan – Sahih)
A project to conserve populations of one of Britain's rarest bees in Cornwall, a county that forms the south-west tip of England, has been able to achieve considerable success over the last year, thanks to support provided by the Mohammed Bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund.
The project, being run by local environmental consultancy Kernow Ecology, is focused on the Long-horned Bee, Eucera longicornis, a species which was once widespread and locally common in Southern England, but has suffered a serious decline. Less than thirty sites for the species are still known. A survey in 2015 and 2016 showed that six of these were in Cornwall, with the species having disappeared from 18 other sites in the county where it was once known. Seven of those sites have lost the species since 2000.

We took 10kg of honey out of our hive at #karekare
. This is the second harvest of the season from this diy hive. We left about 50% for the colony to winter over. So, a small quantity but all we need. Can’t fully express my joy and gratitude for these wee darlings 🙏🏻😍❤️ In a month we will harvest the main hives at hendo. #hendersonvalley #honey #bees #beekeepers #women_beekeeping
A frame of bees from my second apiary site. The capped cells in the middle are capped brood (baby bees)🐝 and on the top edge is capped honey🍯. These girls had a tough start with little nectar in the area but have now bounced back into a productive colony 💪😊
El papel que juegan las abejas en el medio ambiente es fundamental ya que su labor de polinización es insustituible. Sin polinizadores un tercio de nuestra alimentación desaparecería.
Los pesticidas, la contaminación y el cambio climático son causa de la paulatina desaparición de esta especie. Einstein señaló que "si las abejas desaparecieran, el mundo duraría 4 años". Estamos en un momento crítico ya que si no hay polinización, no hay semillas, si no hay semillas no hay plantas y sin plantas no hay vida 🌱🐝💚
Oggi il sole preannuncia la primavera ma i miei ricordi si allontanano a questa giornata che mi ha regalato colori straordinari
It’s not just the bees who are loving their new spot in the shade under the bottle tree! Bring on the honey harvest! 🍯 🐝
