Hey fellas,

I'm really worried about the whole bee hives collapsing thing. I don't have long and I think most of the people who keep up with this site will know the consequences of us killing off the bee population.

What is it like 89% of the worlds food supply can ONLY be pollinated by bees?


Well since I'm not real hopeful that congress or the government will take real action on this front. I have an idea that may help.

I've looked into bee keeping and apparently it's not hard at all. So, my plan is really really simple.
If enough of us regular folks start keeping bees. Then maybe we'll give the little buggers a chance to evolve a resistance to what ever craziness were doing too em.

What do ya'll think?

I don't think you could isolate your own private bees from the pollen floating all through the air, indefinitely. Can bees be contained in such a way? Seems as if they would eventually be exposed to whatever had already killed off all the other bees, if in fact all the other bees had died.

There is a beekeeper who posts here, perhaps he will chime in.

Save the bee's what? (sorry, extraneous apostrophes get to me)

CCD occurs in cultivated beehives just as it does in wild hives so I'm not sure your plan would work.

But from what I know about beekeeping (not a lot), it is a very worthwhile pastime/avocation/business/vocation/hobby for a wide variety of reasons.

I'm not talking about me engineering my own resistant bees. Just that if enough of us bought, kept and if they died bought more. Then maybe we could give them the chance to evolve on there own. If we keep breeding them and introducing them into the environment. Sooner or later Mr. Darwins theory would kick in. Right?
