Trap-out and hive transfer – Backwards Beekeepers

“The insatiable demands of a materialist technology have somehow crucially diminished our reverence and compassion for various forms of life and thwarted our understanding of the web of interdependence that weaves our own life together with the other kingdoms… In 1996 the newspapers reported that approximately sixty percent of the honeybees in the United States had been lost; some states showed losses up to ninety percent.  Expressed in numbers, that means a decrease of colonies from seven million to two-and-a-half million….

The recent Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) has raised the flag from orange to red…it is hoped that the presentation of this material and the perspectives regarding our responsibility as caretakers and stewards of these amazing creatures will encourage a deeper understanding of the bee as a very sensitive and powerful environmental barometer…and to promote among each other nurturing, healthful, harmonious methods for raising bees; methods that will, in turn, reflect a true reverence for the interrelationship and interdependency that we share with all living beings on the Earth.”

- Gunther Hauk (Towards Saving the Honeybee)

As bee colonies around the United States disappear, scientists and beekeepers struggle to find the reason why and ascertain the impact on humans and the planet. Longtime beekeepers and newcomers alike are faced with economic ruin as they try to keep their hives healthy and prevent this crisis from wreaking havoc on a world that depends on pollination to sustain agriculture.”
