The season of giving- give bees!

As the holiday season ramps up I am often asked what I'd like for christmas...I don't really need much, but realize that others are not so fortunate.
Did you know you can give the gift of bees??

Bees in the News

The Puget Sound Beekeeper Association's newsletter compiled a list of reports of bees in the news and on TV...found them very interesting.

Check them out!

Bees in the News
PBS, Nature Series, Silence of the Bees
On October 28th, Nature premiered an excellent one hour program on Colony
Collapse Disorder. Check their webpage for previews, videos and up to date
information on the state of research and how Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus may be
related. An excellent segment and related webpage on “What you can do to help”
states that one of the best things that you can do is become a backyard beekeeper
and join a local beekeeper’s association. Puget Sound Beekeepers Association
would fit that bill! Other recommendations are to plant a bee garden with tips on
species and landscaping.

60 Minutes: What’s Wrong with the Bees?
On October 28th, CBS’ 60 Minutes had a segment on Colony Collapse Disorder.
