Westminster beekeeper explains the importance of protecting pollinators
WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- Honeybees have been dying off at an alarming rate for years now, posing a true threat to food production. Gregg McMahon, a professional beekeeper in Westminster, says he is frustrated because the solution to the problem is not a mystery. ”Beeswax is a natural diuretic, you can’t eat too much of it. Honey was found in the tombs of Egypt, it was still good. Every hospital in Denver has honey because they put it on wounds that won’t heal," he said.
