Why taking honey doesn't harm bees

Bees actually dont spend their entire lives collecting honey! Bees only collect honey for storing at the very end of their life. For most of their lives they are nurse bees, or collecting pollen and nectar for short term storage (like feeding their brood) Baby bees actually eat a mix of uncured nectar and pollen, not honey.

A bee colony in an area like texas will need about 50 pounds of honey to make it through winter with more to spare. Because these bees were bred to store more honey than they naturally need, colonies often produce upwards of 80 pounds of honey a year.
A good beekeeper will not harvest honey from a first year bee colony because they need a surplus to build comb with. After the first year the bees will produce very little, if any, brood comb as it is already large enough to sustain a good population. A second year bee colony will produce far more honey than necessary.

Lets say you were to just leave the bees alone, letting them build up honey.
Firstly, your bees would swarm. Swarming is a dangerous thing for bees, very few swarms survive. They risk being sprayed by humans or moving into bad places (such as inside someones house)
Another thing that can happen when youre colony swarms is small hive beetle. Small hive beetles take advantage of any unguarded honeycomb (after a swarm there will be less bees guarding the comb) and they will wreck havoc. I have seem this first hand and its is awful. Too much honey is not a good thing.
It’s irresponsible to let the bees run out of room like that, which is why taking honey is useful. You take a box of honey, and you put an empty one on. Now that the bees have more space to build comb, their swarming instict will be surpressed. A honeybound hive is easily at rist of collapse.
Although it sounds nice to “leave all the honey for the bees” it honestly is not helping them. They have absolutely no need for such a surplus they were bred to collect.
I know this sounds like a dumb human who acts like they know more than the bees, but its true.

  • Varric: Oh-ho! The broody elf tells a joke!
  • Fenris: I don't brood.
  • Varric: Friend, if your brooding were any more impressive, women would swoon as you passed. They'd have broody babies in your honor.
  • Fenris: You're a very odd dwarf.

Hiveswap And Horror: Possibility Of Scary Segments

Wondered whether or not Hiveswap will have any scary sections? Perhaps something unsettling akin to the True Lab from Undertale? To some (like me) that’s probably really appealing, and after being prompted on Discord, here I am to discuss the possibility of a horror section. Personally, I believe the chances are quite high, and here’s why (rest under a readmore):

The Reasons Why Ewoks Are Awesome: A List by Tony Stark

a.  According to Thor, the Ewoks are happy and thriving on their homeworlds and throughout the galaxy.  It is true, however, that the Ewoks assisted in kicking the asses of space squid Nazis and overthrowing their Evil Empire. 

b.  The Ewoks insist that HYDRA on Earth is also the same as the Space Squid Nazis a.k.a. the legendary Galactic Empire and thus, they are enemies.

c. Also, the Ewoks generally have a hate-on for anyone who hurts their Papa Steeb and Mama Bucky.  And the Rogers-Barnes “woklings” a.k.a. the Babies. 

d.  Fine.  Tony has now grown to love the Ewoks running around his tower because several of them have decided to worship JARVIS as their new God. 

e.  He’s still disappointed that the Ewoks have not elected him to godhood as JARVIS’ creator.   “I am afraid impersonating a deity was not part of my programming, Sir,” was JARVIS’ only wry commentary.

“Jay, who the hell taught you to sass back at me, huh?  Did you catch this from Captain Sassmerica and Sergeant Grumparoo?”
“I’m afraid the sass is hereditary.  Sir.  Yub. Yub.”

f.   Wicket is an ACTUAL FOR REAL JEDI KNIGHT.  As Clint put it, “Yub, yub, motherfuckers!”

g.  To everyone’s distress, Wicket refuses to discuss which Avenger has Force-potential and JARVIS has refused to reveal who was attempting lightsaber practice in the Avengers’ Danger Room. 

h.  Of course, the day came when HYDRA made their attempt at kidnapping the Rogers-Barnes babies.  Thus, they witnessed exactly what happens when cuddly Space Alien Teddy Bears decide to go to war, under the flag of their Captain-Papa and Sergeant-Mama.

i.  And then, the Bears were absolutely overjoyed to meet Grampy and his methods of punishing Evil Kidnapping Squid Nazis.  Yes, Steve’s explanation regarding Bucky and Fangs is still forthcoming.  But Ewoks are still officially LOVE in Tony Stark’s considered opinion. 

Yeah.  Still tygermama’s fault.  :P
