    Comments following article also of interest.

    This approach is, of course, no panacea: however, I think that raising awareness of the bee situation is good---esp among young folks.
    Trite but true that many people do not comprehend how essential bees are to producing food for humans. Can't care about something you don't know about. Maybe if kids learn early on they will live their lives in ways more congenial to the other life-forms of their shared planet.
    Worth a try.

    Shame that all these new beekeepers will only get to see their bees poisoned and lost after the UK government only listened to the big chemicals companies and reversed the ban on the use of neonicotinoid poisons on crops :-(

    They'll be the one that suffers for that mistake, after all, it is only their own industry that they will sabotage and those chemical corporations keep all those profits to themselves (and in the pockets of their crooked politician friends).

    They'll pay some way or the other and I don't mean with currency. :)
    So will anyone who supports the poisoning of this world; They will all pay.
