Bees are amazing. It is well known that they make honey, but I wonder if it is common knowledge how very important they are for our food supply. If people did, I doubt they would use the chemicals on their lawns or allow the spraying of crops with the chemicals that kill them, by the millions. Don’t think they teach that in our schools , do they? Wonder why? Follow the money, as they say.
