The honey debate: there’s no room for exploitation. https://t.co/E9WuF2rTwK

that harvesting honey is good for bees, or at the very least isn’t harmful, has also been disproven. The process of producing honey requires intense labour. Bees gather nectar, mix it with their own enzymes and place it in wax cells within their hive. Bees then create a draft throughout the hive to eliminate moisture and thicken the nectar by flapping their wings in unison. When the honey is ripe, they can store it throughout the winter as a rich source of nutrients. Their labour is specifically dedicated in order to feed their colony – a colony in which humans are not included. When we steal their food and replace it with alternative sugary syrups (which are less nutritious and detrimental to the lives of bees), at the end of the day, we are taking something that is not ours and that we do not need.
