Tweeting for Honey Bees

You have probably heard something about the honey bee shortage which is generally blamed on the phenomenon of colony collapse. The University of California at Davis has an ongoing honey bee research program and recently they joined forces with Haagen-Dazs through TwitCause@The Experience Project to raise money to fund ongoing research. Haagen-Dazs will donate $1.00 to the cause (up to $1,000 a day) every time a Twitter user tweets #HelpHoneyBees. (Sample tweet: Tweet-a-thon for Bees! Tweet #HelpHoneyBees and Häagen-Dazs will donate $1! (up to $1,000/day through Nov 11) http://bit.ly/HoneyBee). In my opinion this is a great example of social networking at its finest.

A Swarm of Bees

A friend of mine had a hive of honey bees that swarmed the other day, and I found it fascinating to view the process of getting the “swarm” into a new hive.

Honey Bee Weather

( Click images to enlarge them)

There is a bee hive in the side of the White Barn, but it has been very quiet for the past several weeks. The weather has been kind of miserable, however the sun came out today and the bees and I were very happy. There was even some pollen collecting going on.
