Happy National Honey Bee Day! Did you know planting flowers is one of the best things you can do to help the bees? 🌼🐝 Bees have to visit about 2 million flowers to collect enough nectar to make 1 pound of honey. That’s 260 million flowers per batch of Bee Line Honey Blonde Ale! 🍯
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At The Beers And The Bees on Sat, 9.1 we'll have wildflower seed packets and pollinator friendly plants for sale courtesy of @morningsun_herb_farm A portion of the proceeds of every pint of Bee Line sold will be donated to @projectapism to fund bee research.

Access to enough forage (blooming plants) is essential to keeping honey bee colonies strong and mitigating other stressors.

Investing in bee research is an investment in the future of honey bee health and pollination security.  Happy National Honey Bee Day!  #honeybee #honeybeehealth #projectapism #honeybeeresearch #beeresearch #science #habitat #pollination #pollinators #investinthefuture #nowastedland

Sun World is abuzz about @projectapism’s #SeedsforBees 🐝 program which provides California growers with bee-friendly crop seeds to plant. The crop then offers vital habitat, nutrition, and breeding grounds for honeybees.

We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with @californiaalmonds, @projectapism and #CollaborateUp to bring to life "The Job Swap Experiment," a film that illuminates the relationship between honey bees as pollinators and the almond industry.⠀

It’s hot out there!

Did you know that honey bees have an ancient air conditioning system?  some worker bees have the job of collecting water for the hive (like this bee drinking from a drip line in an organic garden). Some of the collected water is fanned by the wings of other bees to cool the hive.  Honey bees keep the hive between 89.6 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year, sun or snow.  Now that's teamwork!  #honeybees #science #inspiration #teamwork #projectapism #bees #airconditioning #beekeeping #nowastedland

Sioux Honey beekeeper David Thomas runs his operation out of Keaau, Hawaii, just 8 miles from the lava flow pouring from the #Kilauea volcano on the Big Island. -

David – who had to move nearly half of his 5,200 hives out of harm’s way – will be at Sioux Honey’s #ShareSweetness produce drive in nearby Hilo today until noon HST.

Happy International Pollinator week!  Since 2006 Project Apis m. Has infused over $7 million into honey bee research and forage projects.  We believe that investing in honey bee health is an investment in a sustainable healthy food supply for people and pollinators.  #pollinatorweek #pollinatorweek2018 #honeybee #bees #honeybeeresearch #beeresearch #forage #seedsforbees #pollinators #beehealth @bee_and_butterfly_fund
Bees need water! All you #newbees can avoid a common neighbor complaint by making sure your bees don’t go looking for water in swimming pools, fountains, etc.- train them to a water source in your yard!
