National Pollinator’s Week: contest

| June 24, 2008 | 27 Comments


When I was younger, my nickname was Bee Buzz. I had this crazy little appreciation for bees. I collected bee stickers and everything. This week is National Pollinator Week and Burt’s Bees wants to give these little pollinators their moment in the spotlight for all the work they do in providing us with healthy products that keep us looking BEE-utiful.

They are offering (5) Radiance Kits (http://www.burtsbees.com/) to be used as giveaway promotions to any of your readers who want to learn a little bit more about the bee crisis and what they can do to help.

How can you snag one? Just post a BEE fact from one of the pollinator friendly resources below:

o Burt’s Bees (http://www.burtsbees.com/)

o The Pollinator Partnership (http://www.pollinator.org/)

o Haagen-Dazs Honeybee program (http://www.haagendazs.com/)

Winners will be chosen at random so be sure to inc lude your email address in your comment. Winners of contests within the past 6 months are not eligible and if you are a personal friend or family member, you can’t win either. Love you lots, Mommy, but that means you too! Good luck!

    Honey Bees are responsible for pollinating one-third of all the foods we eat, including many of the ingredients that are in all natural ice creams. =}

    “Nearly 80% of our world’s crop plants require pollination. Birds, bees, butterflies, but also beetles, mosquitoes, and even bats transfer pollen between seed plants. This function is vital for plant reproduction.”

    Due to biodiversity threats such as land development, pollution, and pesticide poisoning, we are losing pollinators around the world at an alarming rate.

    Honey Bee ice cream sounds really tasty right now! Especially since I just walked in out the hot sun

    I always thought of honey bees to pollinate flowers. I just didn’t understand what flowers and why. I also knew they produced honey. I never would have thought they were important in producing cherries, and especially almonds. Wow! Ive been enlightened!

    More than 25% of Western honey bees has disappeared over the last few winters endangering our food supply.

  14. Christina says:

    CCD has resulted in losses of 50 to 90% of managed colonies in U.S. beekeeping operations during the past several years.

    Devastating!

    Paraphrased from burts bees: Without our furry friends some of our favorite fruits and vegetables can not be produced, and due to colony collapse disorder, production may begin to decrease! Aka, we gotta save those bees!

    I just found your blog and really like it! I actually have a honeybee hive in my yard, and my garden has never looked better. I’m looking forward to using the honey in natural beauty treatments this fall, but til then, bring on the burt’s bees!

    Create homes for native bees!
    Many of the wild bees you may encounter in your backyard garden make their burrow homes in the soil. Some bees create hives in snags (a dead or dying standing tree, often with its branches broken off), or in holes in trees. You can also encourage bee-residents by providing man-made nesting blocks or “Bee Condos.”

    Oh this is fun! I just learned that insect pollinators, including honey bees, pollinate products amounting to $20 billion annually in the U.S. alone. That’s a lot of money, honey!
