henrybeekeepingmikePlease Give Bees a Chance

I started my company at age twelve so I could help save the bees from Colony Collapse Disorder which is why I give as much as I can to the preservation of honey bees. – this is me and my inspiration for all things bees – Mike Cook

To find out more about Colony Collapse Disorder and the struggle of the bees worldwide, I highly recommend the movie

The Vanishing of the Bees

You can rent it on Netflix or it is available for purchase on Amazon it is narrated by Ellen Page:

The documentary details the economic, political and ecological consequences of a dwindling world honeybee population. It’s a phenomenon with a name — Colony Collapse Disorder — but no explanation or solution exists.

1. You plant bee friendly plants in your garden.

2. You can put a water source out for them like a fountain or bird bath.

3. You can call a beekeeper if you get a hive or swarm in your yard instead of an exterminator.

And you can help them by donating to places that help bees like:
