Beekeepers Make Changes & So Can You to Bounce Back

The economy has faced a major setback with COVID but I am optimistic.  I encourage my clients to take a positive step, make changes and you will bounce back.  

If you look at nature, in the 2018-19 winter, there were a record 37.7% less honeybees than the previous year.

Honeybees rebounded this previous winter, (reported the Associated Press). This previous winter, there was only a loss of 22.2% of their colonies — considerably better than the average of 28.6%, (Bee Informed Partnership).

During the ongoing 14-year survey, that percentage was the second-smallest winter loss on record.

Honeybee populations often follow a cyclical formula with good seasons following bad ones.  

I believe our bad season will be followed with a good one.

Beekeepers make changes, e.g. bringing their hives indoors during the winter. You can make positive steps to improve your financial situation and find out if bankruptcy will help you.

Honeybees are crucial to the world’s food supply and face numerous obstacles just like all of us do, but they push forward.

I am here to help you, give me a call today.

Some facts about honeybees when you think you are struggling: 

Bees have to fly over 55,000 miles to make 1 lb. of honey

Honeybees never sleep! No wonder worker bees have such a short lifespan!

—1 lb. of honey takes 556 workers and 2 million flowers.

—50-100 flowers are pollinated during one collection trip.
