EATING BETTER FOR BEES
Bee population
  • 36% of the world’s bee population is dying each year. The decline of bees known as Colony Collapse Disorder, is attributed to a variety of reasons. Among them, the use of synthetic herbicides which takes out flowering weeds that were traditionally food sources for bees. Pesticide residues in flower pollens that are brought back to hives affecting the health of the colony. Monoculture (single crop) plantations that starve bees of food during non-flowering seasons.

  • One-third of the world’s food supply depends on the important role of bee-pollination. Without bees, not only will our food systems be affected, the supply of our beloved foods like almonds, apples and avocados may cease.

When was the last time you saw a bee in Singapore?
  • Bees thrive better in an urban setting as compared to in agricultural lands. The use of pesticides in agriculture disrupts the bees’ way of life. In cities like Paris and Boston, a growing number of office and residential buildings are taking up urban beekeeping to raise awareness of how bees are an integral part of our lives and keep the bee population going.

  • In Singapore, if you are fortunate to have a garden or a porch, consider growing bee-friendly flowers. When you see a bee, do not try to kill it. Bees only sting when they sense aggression, and they die once they release their sting. If a bee happens to land on you, gently brush it away. Last but not least, spread the word about bee health today.
