From the past decades, the most common way of dealing with bees, no matter for households or commercial settings, is to exterminate the whole colony of bees. In order words, pest control companies often use chemical pesticide against bees found in the urban area.
As a Green Enterprise, we encourage the use of green and sustainable measures, including the use of physical devices and methods, natural/low-toxicity pesticide to solve pest problems. When we receive reports of beehives, beekeepers will work with our pest specialist together to relocate the colony of bees back to the bee farm. It was to bring bees back to the environment close to nature, and produce natural honey. The honey produced will be bought back and retail at GreenSTORE, so as to keep the beekeeping business sustainable. At the same time Johnson Group is always looking for partnership in this program, apart from selling honey, we offer public education events such as talks and guided tours too.
Beekeepers and their teams are always out to rescue bees from dangerous places and it is not an easy task to save, maintain and raise bees as bees are facing constant threats naturally due to global warming and predators such as wasps. According to statistics, about 1 out of every 3 honeybee colonies die from these causes.
From research, 1/3 of our daily food is directly linked to honey bees’ pollen. For example, herbal jasmine teas, and different kinds of fruits like strawberries, almonds, and even pumpkins. Every little drop of honey is the result of the diligent work and efforts of the beekeepers and bees. By rescuing more and more honey bees that have mistakenly flown into residential areas, we could give back to nature and continue to provide long-term sustainability to this endangered biological cycle.
A way to support this sustainable program is to pass on the majority of the service charge to our beekeeping partner which could help fund our beekeeper to provide a safe and new home for these lost bees. We hope your decision can save these endangered species by supporting the “Save Local Bees Conservation Program”.
