I feel the urge to jump on this bandwagon and say that YOU ARE AWESOME.

(ง ื▿ ื)ว awww, shucks, watermelon. YOU ARE AWESOME TOO! I love seeing you in my activity feed, and your tags are always A+

Sorry mate, but the bee industry can be defended. Without bees as pollinators we would face dramatic food shortages. Bee farms provide a place for the bees to live, flowers for them to pollinate, medical care and attention for the protection of the hive, food for harsh winters and protection from the environment and natural predators. Bees make far too much honey for them to consume, and excess of honey in the hive attracts mites and disease, if we didn't take the honey they would literally die.

You are totally right- bees are powerful pollinators, probably one of the best on earth. The only problem is the western honey bee (Apis mellifera), which is the one invasive honey bee that has been commercialized to produce large amounts of honey, is not as good as native bees at pollinating, especially in the case of fruits and vegetables.    

For example, native bees do 90% of pollination in watermelons, improve fruit production in apples, create twice as much fruit than honey bees in blueberries, and significantly increase fruit production in tomatoes (honeybees aren’t even big enough to pollinate tomatoes.)

Not to mention, Apis mellifera is only one of 20,000 different species of bees. Some species don’t produce honey, some don’t have wings, some are all colors of the rainbow. Only the ones that produce honey are mass bred and spread around the world as an invasive species.

You are also right in saying that beekeepers medicate their bees, but it’s because the mass breeding of the commercialized Apis mellifera is leading to large amounts of parasites, pathogens, fungi, mites, and disease in the managed honeybee hives. Beekeepers medicate bees for the diseases they cause.

Another reason for the growing number of diseases in bee colonies may be because when honey bees’ honey is taken from them, it is replaced with honey substitutes, like high fructose corn syrup, which has an absence of the chemicals in honey. This weakens the bees’ immune systems (detoxification enzymes) which rid their bodies of foreign chemicals (pesticides and pathogens). 

Studies have shown that these parasites, mites, fungi, diseases, and pathogens are spreading to native colonies which may be one of the major reasons for decline in native bumble bee population, you know, the other 19,999 species of bees that are or becoming endangered. 

During winter, different species have different ways of coping with cold. Some hibernate and in some colonies only the queen survives. But some, like the honey bee Apis mellifera, make what is known as a “winter cluster” naturally. This just means that they form a ball of bees (between basketball and softball size). Mellifera is one of the few species that survives as a colony, not as a queen, and they do it without human aid because they produce extra honey for the winter. Hibernating honey bees can consume up to 30 pounds of stored honey during winter months, which may seem like extra to some beekeepers, but not to the honeybees.

When a hive produces more honey than needed, the bees don’t die. It gives them a larger buffer of food stores in case the winter was longer or colder than usual. If there is still extra, the honey bees could “jumpstart” their colony in the spring to build up the number of bees and maybe even split the colony.

Even if bees don’t immediately consume the honey, they will still use it because honey does not expire. 

If you want to help native pollinators, you can start a bee garden by planting some flowers that bees like in your area. Personally, I find that bees really like lavender.
