Someone once asked me who my favorite “artist” was. My answer?
Yeah, Bees made that.
Not these B’s…
Pretty awesome, right?
Well, if they’re so awesome then why are they dying at such a rapid pace?
A survey of bee health released Tuesday revealed a grim picture, with 36.1 percent of the nation’s commercially managed hives lost since last year.
Last year’s survey commissioned by the Apiary Inspectors of America found losses of about 32 percent.
The Apiary had no comment.
Damn. Bees be dyin’.
A bee expert in Pennsylvania puts it into perspective:
“For two years in a row, we’ve sustained a substantial loss,” he said. “That’s an astonishing number. Imagine if one out of every three cows, or one out of every three chickens, were dying. That would raise a lot of alarm.”
I’m a fan of bees. This type of shit cracks me up all the time…
So, let’s try and help the bees. Haagen-Das is helping the bees. They got a nifty web-site with fresh sounds.
Just remember – if the bees die, then so do you (essentially….in a way).
