Being Alone, Bunnies, and Struggle: chubby-bunnies fernsandbones vampiregirl2345 Vegans of tumblr, listen up. Harvesting agave in the quantities required so you dont have to eat honey is killing mexican long-nosed bats. They feed off the nectar and pollinate the plants. They need the agave. You want to help the environment? Go back to honey. Your liver and thyroid will thank you, as well. Agave is 90% fructose, which can cause a host of issues. Bye. vertiga Beekeeper here! Just wanted to say that the fact that vegans won't eat honey is very silly. Harvesting honey does not hurt bees. The invention of modern moveable-frame hives means we can remove a selected frame, extract the honey and return it without killing a single bee. If we destroyed the colony to harvest honey there would be no bees for next year, and beekeepers are incredibly careful to keep their bees healthy and thriving. We take *excess* honey that they don't need and it stops the hive from becoming honey-bound, meaning that there's so much honey the Queen has nowhere to lay eggs. And if the winter is harsher than expected and the remaining honey store runs low, we feed the bees plenty to make sure they survive. We also make sure that pests are controlled, bees are treated for disease, and the hive is weatherproof and in good repair, all things that wild bees struggle with. Keeping bees in properly managed hives where they don't starve or die from preventable disease is much better for them than being left to fend for themselves, and they're far too important to be left alone. All the fruits and vegetables that vegans *do* eat couldn't exist without bees, and the hives which pollinate those crops also produce excess honey which the beekeepers can sell to help keep themselves and their hives going.

America, Anaconda, and Animals: DID YOU KNOW? THANKS TO THE WALNUT TREE, WE CAN MAKE OUR OWN WALNUT MILK, WHICH IS NEARLY 10,000X BETTER THAN THE EXCRETIONS OF BOVINE ANIMALS! NECTING CONSCIOUSNESS SIMPLY SOAK WALNUTS OVERNIGHT IN WATER, IDEALLY WATER THAT'S REMINERALIZED AND PURIFIED WITH AURO MINERALS, THEN BLEND WITH 2X THE AMOUNT OF WATER TO WALNUTS, ADD COCONUT SUGAR, DATES, AGAVE OR LOCAL, NON-COMMERCIAL HONEY TO SWEETEN! STRAIN THROUGH A CHEESECLOTH AND BOOM BANG BING! YOU HAVE CREATED A LIFE CHANGING ELIXIR. MAKE SPELT PANCAKES AND WAFFLES WITH IT! 🌿🐿 Have you had home-made walnut milk before? Amazing thing is it's not antibiotic filled, growth hormone laced, gmo-fed, pesticide laden, vibration-lowering and diabetes inducing, the way cows milk is. 🥛 There is nothing quite like it out there. Not to mention the health benefits of walnuts themselves 😳 💭 Add 1 cup of walnut milk, 1 cup of spring water to 2 cups of spelt flour, along with a pinch of sea salt, and coconut sugar, then 2tbsp of grapeseed oil. Feel free to put that in a waffle iron or a pan and fry it up. Serve with maple syrup 🏂🍁 spelt waffles and pancakes for all!🤓 💭 Also before anyone gets any ideas🤔... commercial honey is mixed with gmo corn syrup🌽, and treat the bees with extreme disrespect. Contrast that to local, hobby beekeepers who give European honeybees (who are not native to North America) a place to live, peacefully, for them to pollinate the local area in a 3 mile radius from the hives, sustainable beneficial and healthy 100%. Vegan as well because honey comes from flowers🌺🌸 and no cruelty happens to them:) 💭 Join Us: @connecting.consciousness

Hiveless bees die, or find a new hive if they’re <i>lucky</i>, and if they do, they spread the mites, killing another hive. Bee Keepers mix up a little clove oil into a sugary treat for the bees. Clove oil is harmless to bees and deadly to mites. A little bit of this treatment can easily save a hive. The hard part if catching the infestation before it gets bad.

As I touched on above, if you’re making a lot of money, you can afford more hives. They way you do this is to let a hive swarm, or artificially cause a hive to swarm. Both of these break the hive into two hives, both have half the bees form the original hive, then they bee keeper helps them grow back to full population. A good bee keeper can even help control the type of population a hive has, meaning more drones, or even prompting more queens, which will start new hives via artificial swarming. If a bee keeper isn’t making enough money to expand their hives, they are often forced to prevent swarming, which does not grow the population.</li> <li>Bee Keepers will only ever take enough honey so the bees will thrive, and never starve. And if they have to take more honey for some reason (tainted honey, damage to the hive, etc) they will always supplement the hive with extra feed, often in the form of sugar water or honey from a different hive who’s made excess. Running a hive or 12 is expensive, and you need to protect your investments. No keeper would ever take more honey than they need from a hive.</li> </ul><p>I could keep going with reasons why you should buy honey to help bees and keepers alike, but I’ve kept my family waiting on me for 10 minutes writing this out and I’ve got to go.
