BEEKEEPERS: Sure, nobody likes a bee to buzz around them. And admit it, don’t you feel a sense of conquering when you’re able to swat a bee and protect the family picnic. Next time, before you pick up that rolled up newspaper, consider how important bees are to our food chain. There are some plants that simply can’t grow without bees doing their pollination thing. Many beekeepers actually raise hives then transports them to farms in need. There has also been a concern over hive collapse which nobody can explain. But you can bet when the mystery is solved, it will probably be beekeepers that come up with the fix.
