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?

 

 

 

What Is The Deal With A Honeybee’s Eyes

Filed under: Bee Removal — Tags: , — New Jersey Pest Control @ 9:01 am June 27, 2017

We all have seen close up pictures of many different insects, and all these close-ups show us many different insect eyes. Some insects have stranger looking eyes than other insects, but they are all bizarre looking, and all seem to have more than just two eyes. Although you may have never seen a honey bee’s eyes close up, these pollinating insects have some of the strangest looking eyes in the animal kingdom. For example, honeybee eyes have hairs growing on them.Bees

Honeybees have five eyes in total. A honeybee has two compound eyes on each side of its head, and three extra eyes on the top of its head. The two eyes located on each side of a honeybee’s head are rather easy to locate, but the three eyes on top, the ocelli, are difficult to see with the naked eye because they are located in between the bee’s antennae.

A honeybee’s two compound eyes are especially easy to notice on drones. Each of the compound eyes contains almost seventy thousand tiny lenses called “facets”. Amazingly, each of these nearly seventy thousand lenses possesses its own set of photosensitive cells. These facets are all grouped together and each has a purpose such as perceiving light, movement, colors and patterns. There are one hundred and fifty groups of facets in each compound eye, and they are called “ommatidia”. Each ommatidia is connected to the optic nerve. The images gathered from these lenses form images in a honeybee’s brain. Bees are great at perceiving color, polarized light and motion, but bees cannot make out the lines that separate objects too well.

Bees can perceive more colors than humans can perceive. For example, bee’s can perceive ultraviolet light, but what humans see as red bee see as black. Bees can also sense a single motion lasting for 1/300th of a second. Bees can see the beginning and end of this super-quick movement. A human would not be able to perceive anything that happened within such a short amount of time. This is probably why a bee cannot be caught even after one stings you.

Do you think that all flying insects possess comparable visual anatomies and/or abilities?
