Being Alone, Bunnies, and Struggle: chubby-bunnies fernsandbones vampiregirl2345 Vegans of tumblr, listen up. Harvesting agave in the quantities required so you dont have to eat honey is killing mexican long-nosed bats. They feed off the nectar and pollinate the plants. They need the agave. You want to help the environment? Go back to honey. Your liver and thyroid will thank you, as well. Agave is 90% fructose, which can cause a host of issues. Bye. vertiga Beekeeper here! Just wanted to say that the fact that vegans won't eat honey is very silly. Harvesting honey does not hurt bees. The invention of modern moveable-frame hives means we can remove a selected frame, extract the honey and return it without killing a single bee. If we destroyed the colony to harvest honey there would be no bees for next year, and beekeepers are incredibly careful to keep their bees healthy and thriving. We take *excess* honey that they don't need and it stops the hive from becoming honey-bound, meaning that there's so much honey the Queen has nowhere to lay eggs. And if the winter is harsher than expected and the remaining honey store runs low, we feed the bees plenty to make sure they survive. We also make sure that pests are controlled, bees are treated for disease, and the hive is weatherproof and in good repair, all things that wild bees struggle with. Keeping bees in properly managed hives where they don't starve or die from preventable disease is much better for them than being left to fend for themselves, and they're far too important to be left alone. All the fruits and vegetables that vegans *do* eat couldn't exist without bees, and the hives which pollinate those crops also produce excess honey which the beekeepers can sell to help keep themselves and their hives going. TLDR: BUY THE HONEY, HELP THE BEES. Source: vampiregirl2345 16,030 notes Agave vs. Honey

Asian, Bad, and Facts: 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. 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>

Alive, Ass, and Beer: Ever seen this kind of image? BROS NOT BROS They just want to see what you're playing. You better thank them for giving your dumb ass honey and keeping the flowers alive and shit These dicks wear the bee unifornm to troll wildiife and YOU. Do not fooled, these guys exist only to fuck you up and don't care what you're playing Don't believe everything you see on the internet! BRO BROS They just want what you're thank them for dumb ass honey and he flowers alive and shit These dicks bee uniform to troll wildife fooled, these guys ex Do not ly to fuck you up and don't care youre playing Here are some facts about bees, wasps and hornets: 1. Bees, wasps AND hornets all help to pollinate flowers. So if you want to fucking live you better not clap these things to death 2. Hornets and wasps kill of ,.varmints" like caterpillars, mos- quitoes, spiders, horseflies and more 3. In a month ONE hornet folk can eat up to 15kg of insects. A wasp folk makes at least half of this in the same time 4. Wasp or hornet poison isn't more dangerous than bee poison. In fact: bee poison is three times more poisonous! 5. Wasps contribute A LOT to the quality of wine, beer and bread. They carry essential yeast fungus in their stomach and distribute them all around their living space. Over 17 yeast fungus have been found in the stomachs of wasps and none of them in bees. And they even bequeath them to their young So if vou prick want some ice wine, beer, bread and you don't wanna die by 2050 you better not smack these to death and act like a screaming little girl!

The color nuances we see depend on the number and distribution of cones (=color receptors) in our eye. You can check this rainbow: how many color nuances do you count? You see less than 20 color nuances: you are a dichromats, like dogs, which means you have 2 types of cones only. You are likely to wear black, beige, and blue. 25% of the population is dichromat. You see between 20 and 32 color nuances: you are a trichromat, you have 3 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green and red area). You enjoy different colors as you can appreciate them. 50% of the population is trichromat. You see between 33 and 39 colors: you are a tetrachromat, like bees, and have 4 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green, red plus yellow area). You are irritated by yellow, so this color will be nowhere to be found in your wardrobe. 25% of the population is tetrachromat. You see more than 39 color nuances: come on, you are making up things! there are only 39 different colors in the test and probably only 35 are properly translated by your computer screen anyway :) It is highly probable that people who have an additional 4th cone do not get tricked by blue/black or white/gold dresses, no matter the background light ;) (x) I see 21 colors. I had no idea there are so many more. I see 35-39 colours, and I hate the colour yellow. That was actually what made me curious enough to stop scrolling and count. Who knew there was a scientific reason behind my colour preferences?So the idea here is that what I see as annoyingly, garishly bright, most people don’t see as clearly, and that’s why it’s “cheerful?” (I’ve never understood that description of yellow.) I barely saw 18 or 19. Dang :/ Seriously? I see all 39 extremely easily. 39, but only just ( then again, I am looking at this through a very damaged phone screen )
