#honeybees regulate temperature of their hive throughout the year. When it is cold bees huddle together and warm themselves by eating honey and vibrating their wing muscles to generate heat. When it is hot they collect water for evaporative cooling. In very hot weather, bees congregate at the hives entrance, forming a beard. This allows the bees still within the hive to fan to greater effect. #drewshoneybees

FLOWER PEST CONTROL. As the humble bee and its hive is threatened by toxic pesticide use world wide organic farmers are reviving smart and beautiful ways to combat pests. Farmers are revisiting practices of creating environments where natural predators of the pests that decimate crops will thrive. In between their crops they are growing flowers (often native flowers) that attract parasitic wasps for example that eat the larvae of aphids. Encouraging the right kind of insects who feed on pests is a science but the results are very encouraging. For me there is absolutely no question that this the only way forward and that we must leave behind the use of the poisons of the past that have had such a devastating affect on the environment, wild life and human health. #honey #bee #bees #savethebees #royaljelly #honeycomb #honeybee #propolis #beehive #pollen #beekeeping #busybee #beeswax #honeybees #hive #beekeeper #rawhoney #beepollen #beevenom #pollination #beehappy #beesofinstagram #localhoney #apiary #busybees #lovebees 🐝 #rawhoneycomb #rawhoneyph #rooftopbees #savethebeesaustralia

Look at this big goofball! 🤪Meet the drone: the male honeybee. They look really silly because of their clumsy waddle, their giant eyes and their low buzz buzz. 🐝 When they’re not hanging out at the honey bar, 🍻they’re out flying in a big huddle in the middle of the open sky, waiting for a virgin queen to show up. This is their moment: they can’t gather nectar to make honey, they can’t even sting so they can’t defend the hive. A drone goes out in a blaze of glory as he succumbs to death after the mating ritual. Those drones that didn’t get to participate in this tradition hang around the hive until the cool morning of autumn start to creep in. 🍂 Then the workers, fed up with the free-loading drones, kick the drones out in the cold to stay efficient for the winter. ❄️ Such is the life of a drone. . . Regardez ce gros pitre! 🐝🤪Faites la connaissance du faux bourdon : le mâle de l’abeille. Ils ont un drôle d’air avec leur allure pataude, leurs énormes yeux et leur bourdonnement sourd. Quand ils ne traînent pas au bar à miel, 🍻 ils se rassemblent pour voler en nuage dans le ciel, dans l’attente qu’une reine vierge se montre. Et là, c’est leur moment! Un faux bourdon ne peut récolter du nectar pour en faire du miel. Il ne peut même pas piquer pour défendre la ruche. Sa sortie dans le ciel est son chant du cygne car il meurt une fois le rituel d’accouplement achevé. . Les faux bourdons qui ne s’adonnent pas à la reproduction restent autour de la ruche jusqu’à ce que les frais matins d’automne s’installent. 🍂 Alors, les abeilles ouvrières, tannées de ces faux bourdons pique-assiettes, les chassent dehors, dans le froid, pour que la ruche reste performante. ❄️ . . . . #honeybees #bees #abeilles #fauxbourdonnes #drones #learnwithus #urbanbeekeepers #apiculteurs #apicultrices #apiculture #beekeepers

August 18, 2018, is Honey Bee Awareness Day! You have a bee to thank for everyone in three bites of food you eat. Honey bees perform about 80% of all pollination worldwide. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day. The wind primarily pollinates grains, but bees pollinate fruits, nuts, and vegetables. 70 out of the top 100 human food crops — which supply about 90% of the world’s nutrition — are pollinated by bees. 🐝 Biologists have found more than 150 different chemical residues in bee pollen, a deadly “pesticide cocktail” according to University of California apiculturist Eric Mussen. The chemical companies Bayer, Syngenta, BASF, Dow, DuPont, and Monsanto, advocate no change in pesticide policy. After all, selling poisons to the world’s farmers is profitable. Eden Solutions is different. Our products decrease pest and disease AND are 100% safe for honey bees (+ all benficials, people, and animals), in fact, the attraction of bees dive bombing gardens recently sprayed with Blue Gold is a well-known occurrence our customers see regularly. Check out this video sent to us by Blue Gold grower, George! 🐝 “Bees LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!! When I’m misting the roses, they fly through the mist and dive into the roses. This is an excellent video of a bee loving the Blue Gold Rose. I have been using their products for a year now. AMAZING STUFF!!! I feel confident. I’m in Albuquerque, NM and sprayed all my roses at 1:00 pm when it was sunny and hot. THEY LOVE IT. NO DAMAGE. NO WILTING. I USE LESS WATER WHILE SPRAYING ON THE BOTTOM (dirt).” 🐝 Honey Bee facts supplied by @greenpeace. 🐝 #roses #roses 🌹 #rosesofinstagram #rosegarden #floral #florals #honeybees #honeybee #pesticidefree #organicgardening #organicgarden #organicgardener #farmerflorist #roseseason #flowers #bees #pesticides #gardenrose #gardenroses #roseslover #gardenchat #gardening #gardeninglife #rosestagram #savethebees #rosesthatlastayear #gardeningtime #garden #gardeners #gardener
