“It takes a bee to get the honey out” Arthur Guiterman
It’s a 4.0 minute read.
However scientifically we have advanced,we still can’t extract honey from the flower.Only Bees are capable of doing that job.
For argument sake yes,humans can extract but they can’t pollinate.
Bees are one of the wonderful creatures of the Almighty.
How frequently Bees visit flowers ?
Typically it takes 2 million visits to a flower for the bees to produce one pound of honey.

Is not a fact that we all fear Bees?
Yes.We all fear bees,because they sting us,if disturbed.But remember they sting only when they feel threatened.Don’t swat.
We feel threatened when we find Beehives in the Apartment complexes, immediately we try to destroy it.Remember honeybee colonies should never be exterminated.
Honey bee lives about 40 days and do you know that the bees work to death gathering nectar ?
We can learn lot from Bees.
What do the bees teach us ?
- First thing comes to out mind is the team work,humans miserably fail in this regard by having ego and individualistic traits.
- Bees always give their hundred percent for the cause of producing honey.We humans have tendency to find excuses while carrying out our jobs.
- Defending the family against the outside interference ,where as we act in a selfish way creating disharmony with family members.
- Bees adapt to their surrounding,while we make a big fuss about any change in our environment.
Why Bees are important to us ?
Bees are not just for the Honey.
We need them because they are pollinators.Because of these pollinators,we are able to have our daily food.

Neither kill the bees nor destroy the beehives
My friend,the very survival of humans depends on the survival of the bees.
