Be Brave Bees

Bees make our World go round; they keep the Environment sustainable, they pollinate our flowers, and they provide us with Honey!

I am fortunate in that my parents have their own bees (60,000 bees!!!) in their garden, and a beekeeper to come and help with them in the Summertime. I am so grateful that we are able to receive fresh local honey right from my backyard!

I realize it may be difficult for everyone to have their own bees, so if that is not an option, here are some other ways you can help.

  1. Buy local honey from your local farmers market
  2. Keep a water cup with sugar outside during the summer for the bees; they get thirsty!
  3. Don’t kill them! They are more scared of you than you are of them; if they get near you, be calm, and carry on. ❤

Here is a link I got some of these lovely tips from: http://www.queenofthesun.com/get-involved/10-things-you-can-do-to-help-bees/

Inform yourself and watch some fun + informational videos too!

Fall in Love with the Bees; I recommend watching this fun movie if you haven’t seen it yet, called the Bee Movie starring the hilarious Jerry Seinfeld. It will surely make you Love them.

Here is a video of my parents’ beehive that I took just a few days ago! 🙂
