Many people see a bee and immediately feel fear because they are afraid of being stung, yet they essentially keep all of humanity alive.
We don’t even have to parade ourselves as tree huggers to truly care about the environment, considering what human beings have done to the planet for the last 2 million years, bringing species to mass extinction, we have no choice.
The excuse that we didn’t know better no longer stands, we are being educated on the daily about how we are harming the planet, yet many refuse to change.
Without bees, we would cease to exist and the reasoning is pretty simple – bees pollinate flowers and when one says this, don’t take it lightly – they are responsible for over 90% of food production.
David Attenborough, the much loved voice behind Blue Planet and Planet Earth has sternly warned us all that “if bees were to disappear from the face of the Earth, humans would have just four years to live.”
And honestly, at the rate things are going, we’re not too far from that. The 92 year old shared some heartfelt sentiments on Instagram, stating that “in the last five years, the bee population has dropped by 1/3.”
There is, however a way to fix things.
One of them is to leave a teaspoon of sugar water in a convenient spot for bees in your garden which will act as a refilling station for when they’re tired.
“This time of year bees can often look like they are dying or dead, however, they’re far from it. Bees can become tired and they simply don’t have enough energy to return to the hive which can often result in being swept away. If you find a tired bee in your home, a simple solution of sugar and water will help revive an exhausted bee. Simply mix two tablespoons of white, granulated sugar with one tablespoon of water, and place on a spoon for the bee to reach.”
