Check out this article on a theft of 30 bee hives. It might seem like a strange thing to steal, but bee keeping is a growing industry. And it’s not just about the honey they produce. The biggest value of bees is the pollinating of plants that they do. Many people don’t realize that our entire food system is dependent on these insects. This is why at Green Frog pest Control, we do everything in our power to avoid harming honeybees.
Unfortunately, the bees that were stolen were from a research colony, making the loss that much more damaging. Next time you see bees on your property in Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey or Richmond, think about the value of these unassuming insects.
