Honey Bees do more than just give us a delicious treat. The honey bee pollenates our fruits and vegetables. The third Saturday in August is World Honey Bee Day. The day started in 2009 and is designed to recognize not only the Honey Bee but the Beekeepers than tend to their hives. Locally produced honey can help you to build up immunities from allergies.
Collect and spread wildflowers to help build up the honey bee population. Depending on where you live and what type of flowers and nectar are available, the taste of the honey will be different.
Its not uncommon to find hives of honey bees around homes in Gainesville. It is illegal to kill a hive in Florida. But I have several Honey Bee enthusiasts who are happy to come and relocate a hive for free, just give me a call. 352-538-1092
