Bees & The Environment

Honeybees are social insects noted for providing their nests with large amounts of honey. A colony of honeybees is a highly complex cluster of individuals that functions virtually as a single organism. A colony usually consists of a queen bee, a fertilised female capable of laying a thousand or more eggs per day; from 30,000 to 60,000 sexually undeveloped females, the worker bees; and from zero to 1,000 male bees or drones.
The value of the honeybee to man does not end with the making of honey. Honeybees mean an abundance of fruit in orchards and vegetables in market gardens. When the forager bee gathers nectar her body becomes dusted with pollen and as she moves from flower to flower, the pollen passes from male flowers to female flowers and cross-pollination takes place.
Without the bee, the blossoms may not bear fruit and without the floral sources there could be no honey – it is a perfect partnership. Fruit growers and market gardeners are delighted when beekeepers set colonies on their property – many invite them to do so. This pollination process is worth up to $1.2 billion per annum to the Australian horticultural industry.
Australia is blessed with an abundance of fine honeys most of them found nowhere else in the world. Our long hours of sunshine and a great selection of native trees with their nectar laden blooms combine to produce honeys that are highly regarded for their unique flavours. No other honeys in the world have quite the same character and taste. Honey production varies from year to year because of drought and other seasonal factors.

Honey bees

Honey bees make an important contribution to sustainable agriculture and the environment. The Government recognises the importance of a strong bee health programme in England to protect these benefits and takes very seriously any biosecurity threat to the sustainability of the apiculture sector.
The Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera) is responsible for the Government’s bee health policy in England and in particular, the implementation of the Healthy Bees Plan. Fera’s National Bee Unit (NBU) delivers the bee health programme in England and in Wales (on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government).
The aim of the programme is to control the spread of endemic notifiable diseases of honey bees and to identify and manage the risk associated with new exotic pests and diseases that may be introduced. The programme is important in commercial and environmental terms by protecting honey bees needed for pollination of agricultural and horticultural crops, as well as honey production.
The NBU provides an integrated programme of apiary inspections, diagnostics, research and development and training and advice which are provided by a team of bee scientists and experienced practical beekeepers. The NBU also provides specialist advice and technical consultancy services on bee health to other government departments, beekeepers and industry. For further details of the NBU’s functions and activities download the NBU Brochure.
The NBU has a web based database of beekeepers in England and Wales called Beebase, contained within its website http://www.nationalbeeunit.com. The primary function of Beebase is to facilitate efficient risk based statutory pest and disease control and surveillance programmes. It is also an important and powerful tool for disseminating important information to beekeepers, for example, UK and EU legislation, details of pest and disease recognition and control, interactive maps showing current diseases incidence, current research and scientific publications together with items of topical interest.
There are an estimated to be around 40,000 beekeepers in the UK who maintain over 200,000 colonies of honey bees. Of these around 300 are commercial beekeepers managing around 40,000 colonies whilst the remainder are smaller scale beekeepers.

Life Cycle Assessment Case Study:

Building for Economic and Environmental Sustainability (BEES)
First Environment was the contractor for the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) BEES program. The BEES tool is a software program developed by the U.S. federal government that implements a rational, systematic technique for selecting environmentally friendly and cost-effective building products. The tool was designed using consensus standards and was developed with practicality, flexibility and transparency intended for all users.

First Environment developed detailed life cycle models of biobased products to support the USDA’s new initiatives to award Federal purchasing preference to biobased products. The 2002 Farm Bill, signed by the President, includes a section that establishes a product labeling system for biobased products. To qualify for the new “USDA Certified Biobased Product” label, products must first develop a BEES profile. As the U.S. Government is the world’s largest consumer, purchasing over $240 billion in products and services each year, BEES will be of critical importance to vendors, as it will influence innovation and markets.

Bee Maid Honey

Bee Maid Honey is pleased to be a part of the natural chain of life. Just look for “Product of Canada” on every container of honey. This ensures that the product you purchase has played a vital part in supporting the agricultural industry in Canada. It’s Good for You!
Bee Maid’s honey is all local in origin, gathered from hardworking bees across the Prairie Provinces, and 100% Canadian. Not only do our bees provide work for over 2000 beekeepers throughout Western Canada, but they also provide a great service to the farming community and the environment in general.
Our honeybees are perhaps the most important pollinator operating in the Canadian agricultural industry. Pollination is, quite simply, transferring grains of pollen from one plant to another, to fertilize the ovaries of flowers. While some plants rely on wind to provide pollination, and others are self-pollinating, most flowering plants need the services of natural pollinators, such as honeybees, to do the work. Many of the crops grown on the Canadian Prairies require the use of pollinators: so important are honeybees as pollinators that many farmers will pay beekeepers to have hives located on their land. By using honeybees as pollinators, crop yields can be increased by as much as 300%. Local crops such as canola, alfalfa, and sunflower benefit immensely from the use of our honeybees as pollinators. A good pollination system is part of a healthy eco-system.
In addition to the benefits that our honeybees provide to the agricultural industry, they also provide similar pollination services to wild plants and flowers. Many of our trees, such as willow and poplar, benefit from the pollination services of honeybees, which help to preserve and spread our natural forests. The wealth of flowering plants that blanket the prairies owe much of their existence to the visits of the honeybees: in fact, many flowers evolved in conjunction with the bees. To remove the bees from the environment would mean the demise of many species of flowers and plants that we take for granted.
Many of the plants that our honeybees help to foster provide seeds, fruit, and nuts that feed numerous animal species native to Canada. This is an indirect benefit of honeybees, but a crucial one. If bees were removed from the environment, not only would the plants suffer and expire, but so would many natural animal species that depend upon those plants for their own survival. Loss of honeybees would mean the collapse of the natural ecosystem, so the value of bees aside from the simple production of honey cannot be underestimated.
