Celebrate National Honey Bee Day on August 16th!

Bee This week I chat with Andrew Eshelman a Hobbyist Beekeeper here in Tucson.

Andrew talks about the importance of our Bees and about the day that honors them, coming up on August 16, 2014. Look for an event around Tucson, or host your own!

“Did You Know……

* 1/3 of all vegetables and fruits produced are pollinated by honey bees. Depending on the crop, some fruits would not develop without pollination from honey bees. With other crops, me might get fruit, just not the same amount or quality we desire. Ever see a lopsided apple or pumpkin? That is a sign of improper or a lack of, pollination. Without the honey bee, many things in nature would be “lopsided”.-from National Honey Bee Day website.
