I have been invited by my local newspaper to do a once a month article on bees and things related to bees.

What do you think would be good topics to cover?

Why do you think, pesticides, healthy uses of honey, allergies, Colony Collapse Disorder, Life Cycle of Bees, Jobs of Bees, honey production, etc.?

over use of herbicides and pesticides on the home gardens and yards!!
the use of systemic pesticides kill bugs but are also in the pollens and nectors that the bees feed the there young - hence killing off the hives -

try and teach people to pick the weeds and help then find a better way everyday - if they can do that, the bees can and will keep producing crops for us

Maybe talk about when and why bees sting. When I talk to people about the only times bees realy sting is when they are protecting the hive ,or they are confind. ie caught in hair, stept on, and so on. Other then that if you are not a flower they could careless about you.
