We keep reading about how stressed are humans. Do you know that bees suffer from stress as well? Yes, the same bees who work so hard to give you the super delicious miracle food – honey.

Honey bees work hard. They are social and highly cooperative insects. Their communication is based on motion, sight, and even odors. They travel long distances to gather pollen from nectar in flowers. Bees must fight adverse weather conditions, predators and are at a high risk of losing their way. In harsh winters, honey is the single source of food. Just to produce a single pound of honey, bees must fly 55,000 miles and visit 2 million flowers.

Even after all that hard work, honeybees might not be treated right. There are some beekeepers who take inhumane steps just to increase high production quotas. There are some who in case they can’t reach the required production level, replace honey with cheap sugar substitute. In winters, if the bee keepers are unable to maintain the bee hives, they callously destroy them with cyanide gas. At other times, bees are treated in the cruelest manner. The haphazard handling of bees may lead to their wings and legs being torn off. There have been cases where the nasty bee keepers clip the wings of the queen bee so that she doesn’t leave the bee farm and her army stays with her.

Nature’s Nectar has the largest network of registered bee keepers across India who ensure that we follow ethical and sustainable bee keeping practices. Each of our bee keeper and staff members are sensitized towards the importance of treating bees well. With completely traceable and transparent bee keeping practices, we ensure that we keep the interest of our customers, bee keepers and bees at the top. We believe in empowering our bee keepers so that they are benefited from the honey harvesting efforts. Nature’s Nectar follows practices that benefit the environment and ensures that there’s no harm to the bees. If you wish to read more about all the work that we’re doing for the bees and the bee keepers, here are the details.
