HONEY BEES – FRIEND OR FOE
A lot has been said about honey bees in the media lately. We as Pest Control Operators often see Honey Bees as a business opportunity and sometimes it is necessary to eradicate the bees if they become life threatening however, have you thought about what would happen to the human race if we eradicated all honey bees. Very simply we as a human race will die out and cease to exist as honey bees are responsible for pollinating most of our crops and in short that is their role in the food chain. Our role as environmentally conscious Pest Management Professionals is to look after our resources and to re-establish the balance back in nature. So let’s look after our environment and act responsible and protect the honey bee that is so resourcefully looking after our well being.
Remember that if you do eradicate bees you are doing so in contravention of ACT 36 of 1947 and you need to ensure that you get the necessary permission from The Inspection services to eradicate honey bees in a life threatening situation only.
