Western Honey Bee – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Western Honey Bee:

Western or European Honey Bees is a flying insect native to the continents of Europe, Asia and Africa. It was introduced to the North American continent around 1600. It is an extremely efficient pollinator, and is critical to the crops raised on farms around the world. Honey Bees are know for their extremely advanced ability to communicate with each other, and this communication is critical to the survival of the hive. Information is exchanged by a series of "dances" This is usually used to inform the other hive member of the location of a food source. Millions of hives across the world are kept by humans or beekeeper either as a hobby or part of a farm. Early in the 2000s it was noticed that these hives started collapsing and entire colonies began to die off. It is still unclear what is causing this, but one of the theories apparently back up by science is that genetically modified crops are causing the illness in the bees.
