How do you feel about bees?

Seriously. What do you know about bees? Did you know we have a bee problem here? Our pollinating bees are being wiped out by bug spray. It kills the bees that cross polinate plants. Kind of important, but noone really thinks about it.

  • I have no opinion on bees. I do about ladybugs. We live on a tree farm and we get lady bugs all the time and they are terrible when you have say 1000000000000 of them.

  • Gah - I feel like it's a problem that nobody seems to be paying any attention to.

    You tell somebody that bees are being wiped out and they say "Oh cool, I hate being stung and I can live without honey."

    Agggh. Stupidity.

  • I don't like bees :-D. But It saddens me that they are disappearing. My husband has a friend who has a bee farm and it's about a 1/4th of what it was a few years ago. They just started disappearing. Don't like them, but don't wish ill upon them. I just don't want them to sting me :).

  • This 2009 gardening year I am purposely planting flowers in colors that attract bees for pollination of my garden. Hoping later to start my own bee hives between the pond and garden so they have water and food source and I can gather my own honey.

    I focus on organic gardening... gonna do what I can to help the bees survive.

  • I have no problem with bees. And I actually order Ladybugs every year for my garden.
