An Exotic Type Of Bee Produces A Miraculous Honey That Can Save LivesNew Jersey bee Removal

Here in America, a sore throat can be treated with a bit of Robitussin. Blood sugar disorders can be treated with insulin. Inflammation can be treated with aspirin. Open flesh wounds can be treated with topical antibiotics, and brain tumors can be treated with radiation therapy. Many people assume that western medical treatments, such as the few listed above, are the most effective treatments ever developed. There may be a few downsides to western medicine. Radiation therapy, for example, comes with risks and terrible side effects, but such effects would certainly be worth tolerating if it meant eventually destroying a brain tumor. However, some health care professionals working in Malaysia may disagree. Many Malaysian doctors believe that, thanks to one type of insect, one particular substance can successfully treat all of the above listed medical conditions. A bee that is native to Malaysia may be able to produce the most significant and versatile therapeutic substance known to mankind, and it’s honey, of course. The Apis dorsata species of honeybee produces honey that even hard science has shown to be medically valuable. The only catch is that this miracle honey is not easy to obtain.

The honey has been named Tualang honey after the tall trees where it is produced and obtained. These trees reach heights that measure just below three hundred feet, and they are located within dense forests that can be a challenge to navigate. During the early spring the Apis dorsata honey bees build peculiar looking honeycombs on the highest branches of these trees. These honey bees become aggressive when they learn that others are trying to snatch their honey. These honeybees are also the largest honeybees in the world. So obtaining this unique honey is not easy, and those who do risk their lives for it, will charge a high price for parting ways with the prized honey.

Studies have shown that this honey possesses phytochemicals that combat the growth of tumors. The honey is also rich in antioxidants, anti-bacterial compounds, anti-inflammatory chemicals, and it can greatly benefit cardiovascular health. The honey can be ingested to fight various illnesses, and it can be used as a topical substance to prevent wounds from becoming infected. The honey stabilizes blood sugar, and it can even lower blood pressure. The honey is used most often by Malaysians and citizens of nearby countries, such as New Zealand.

Do you believe that further studies will reveal these above claims to be exaggerated?

 

 

 

How Do Insects Influence The Economy? | Bee Removal Experts

How Do Insects Influence The Economy? Bee Removal Expertsbee

Ever since bumblebee populations started to decline sharply a few years ago, there has been a lot of attention paid to how much work insects perform for humans. Many panicking CEOs scrambled to get an estimate on how much money would be lost if bumblebees were not around to pollinate crops. Without bees there would easily be billions of dollars lost. But bees are not the only insects that have an effect on the economy.

Insects are also an important food source for billions of people and animals worldwide. North American fisheries would go under since freshwater species subsist off of flies and other insects. The fishing industry is a twenty eight billion dollar industry, and this industry relies on insects for basically everything.

Even dung beetles, despite being just one type of insect, would crash the economy. This is because dung beetles move livestock feces off of farmland. If there were no dung beetles around to perform this service, the feces would fester on the land, and that would attract a multitude of pests. There would also be less land available for foraging livestock. Without dung beetles, land for grazing cattle could become unusable over time.

If bumblebees were to disappear, even if it was just a few species, the state of the economy would not be the only concern. Entire ecosystems would be destroyed along with much of the animal life living within such ecosystems. The loss of pollination alone would tank the economy and put some of the wealthiest people in the world into billions of dollars in debt.

Entomologist John Losey of Cornell University, and his colleague Mace Vaughan estimated how much money would be lost if insects disappeared. The two researchers considered four different factors. The factors involved pollinating plants, controlling pests, serving as food for wildlife and processing cattle dung. When these four different factors are taken into account, the conservative estimate as to how much money would be lost hovers at around fifty seven billion dollars. Researchers are still learning about all of the different ways that insects help humans survive.

Do you think that declining bee populations constitute a legitimate worry?

Carpenter Bees: Friend or Foe | New Jersey Bee Removal Experts

Many people are on the fence about whether carpenter bees are our friends or foes. Let’s face it. They do some pretty annoying stuff like drill holes in wooden structures such as fence posts or tree limbs and will sometimes pierce the corolla of a flower in order to get that sweet nectar without actually helping in the pollination process. It’s understandable that people might not be terribly fond of these guys.

However, despite their sometimes bad behavior, these bees are still very important to our eco system. While they do sometimes rob flowers of their nectar, they are still important pollinators of many native plants such as blueberries, passion fruit, and melons. One thing that most people don’t realize is that when they drill holes in wood, they are actually helping to start the break down dead limbs and logs so that the wood can decay and be recycled by nature. These bees are only a pest when they drill into wood we use for construction. But how are they supposed to know the difference? To put it simply their beneficial aspects far outweigh the negative. Let’s give these little guys a break.

Have you ever seen a carpenter bee? Did it seem like a nuisance to you?

Carlinville Is The Bee Research Capitol | New Jersey Bee Removal

If you are an expert on bees then you’ve probably already heard of Carlinville and the groundbreaking entomologist Charles Robertson. His research from over a century ago is once again catching the eye of the scientific community, as they found that in recent study of the bee population of Carlinville has declined by more than half since his groundbreaking studies of the bees in Carlinville spanning from 1887 until 1916. Numerous species have completely died off. Robertson documented the relationship between plants and their pollinators, looking at butterflies, beetles, and flies in addition to bees. He discovered hundreds of new insect species, 20 of which are named after him. Robertson helped put Carlinville on the map, playing an incredibly important figure in the area of bee research even in our own time. He really laid the foundation for all research on bees and how they interact with their environment that has been done since then. Now scientists are looking back at his research to help them understand why so many bees have disappeared since then, and possibly discover a way to save them from dying off completely.

What do you think scientists and the world need to do to save bees from extinction? How might our lives be affected by the loss of bees?
