That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will. This is why honey is not vegan. The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus. The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc. Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival. It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly. literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey Beekeepers- Provide a home for the bees Keep that home warm in the winter Keep the bees well fed, negating the need for honey, which the bees would make anyways Still do not take all the honey, just in case Protect the bees from predators Monitor the hives for any signs of the parasites, diseases, etc. that cause colony collapse disorder Their bees- Provide a valuable and reliable source of pollination for plants in the area, both wild and crops Help keep the local ecosystem healthy Honey- Is one of the healthiest things you can eat Is able to keep for a EXTREMELY long time (Millennia even), making it more valuable than many perishable foods without being full of preservatives Can be used to soothe sore throats, nauseau, etc. Has been eaten by humans since at least Ancient Egypt (We’ve found STILL EDIBLE honey in tombs) Is a great tool in cooking, adding sweetness without raising the sugar content much Is a staple food in many people’s diets Honey is amazing you can put it on or in pretty much everything I goddamn love it and you should too. Honey is also a natural antimicrobial that has been used medicinally since time out of mind on external wounds like edible neosporin. Particularly useful in the treatment of dermal abcesses. “oh no we steal it from the bees!”*has no problem benefiting from exploited migrant farm workers* ^^^ : A teaspoon of honey represents the life work of 12 bees. rainnecassidy: congenitalprogramming: cotestuck: montypla: meloromantics: appropriately-inappropriate: audreyvhorne: sttinkerbelle: vmpolung: knowledgeandlove: Photo source Fact check source #and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

Although a handful of Asian giant hornets can easily defeat the uncoordinated defenses of a honeybee colony, the Japanese honeybee has an effective strategy. When a hornet scout locates and approaches a Japanese honeybee hive, she emits specific pheromonal hunting signals. When the Japanese honeybees detect these pheromones, a hundred or so gather near the entrance of the nest and set up a trap, keeping the entrance open. This permits the hornet to enter the hive. As the hornet enters, a mob of hundreds of bees surrounds it in a ball, completely covering it and preventing it from reacting effectively. The bees violently vibrate their flight muscles in much the same way as they do to heat the hive in cold conditions. This raises the temperature in the ball to the critical temperature of 46 °C (115 °F). In addition, the exertions of the honeybees raise the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the ball. At that concentration of CO2, they can tolerate up to 50 °C (122 °F), but the hornet cannot survive the combination of high a temperature and high carbon dioxide level. Some bees do die along with the intruder, much as happens when they attack other intruders with their stings, but by killing the hornet scout, they prevent it from summoning reinforcements that would wipe out the entire colony.</p></blockquote> <p>Bad and Naughty Hornets will be cooked in the <b><i>Ḅ̖͔͓̤̜̘̀͂ͮ͌͊̂ ͓̥̥̒ͭ̔̒Ẹ͎͎̫̠̞ͩ͒ ̲̥̦̲͒̏Ë̘́̏̾ͮ̒ ͉̬̦̹̳̜͈̋͗̀̇̍̌ ̱͕̱̤̣̟̓̽ͧ ̗̗̲ͮ͒ͧ͂̇ ̯̔͊͑͆̈Ŏ͔̝̔͌͒̓ ̞͈̩V̪͕̲̳̥̖ͩ ̙̺̲̫ͥ̔̽̏̓ͨͬȄ̹͈̦ ̼͓̻͉̫̖́̄̑͌ͣͤ̄N̜̝̖̠̬ͨͮ̾</i></b><br/></p></blockquote>: Japanese honeybees kill hornets by enclosinig them in a ball of bees, and then shaking so fast and generating so much heat that they cook the hornet at 115°F Photo courtesy of Takahashi/wikipedia @factsweird <p><a href="http://therothwoman.tumblr.com/post/165708334341/mindblowingfactz-european-honeybees-have-no" class="tumblr_blog">therothwoman</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://weird-facts.org/post/165693362252/european-honeybees-have-no-innate-defense-against" class="tumblr_blog">mindblowingfactz</a>:</p><blockquote><p>European honeybees have no innate defense against the hornets, which can rapidly destroy their colonies.
