World Honey Bee Day - the third Saturday in August
World Honey Bee Day was founded by beekeepers in the United States in 2009.
Honey is a sweet liquid, full of sugar, produced by bees of the honey bee genus. Honey is the sugar secretion of bees.
There are many types of honey, among which there are differences in chemical composition, texture, color, smell and taste. The differences between the types of honey are due to various factors such as the species of insect that produced it, the sources of sugar (nectar or honeydew) from which it was produced, the weather conditions, the type of soil and the geographical location.
Honey was discovered in prehistoric times. Murals in caves discovered in various parts of the world testify to the fact that man used bee honey thousands of years ago.
The word honey appears in the Bible 54 times, 21 times of its content in a phrase that describes the Land of Israel as "a land flowing with milk and honey."
Honeymoon is the period of 30 days after the wedding, which according to universal belief, if one eats honey in them every day, the married life will be sweet and full of love and understanding.
Among different nations believed to have honey increases male potency. For this reason, some tribes in Morocco tend to let the groom eat a lot of honey before his wedding.
Vegans do not eat honey because it is a product of the work of bees and in the honey industry there is cruelty to bees. Bees also have the ability to feel and get hurt, and honey loss involves killing maggots and bee larvae and killing adult bees. When a hive no longer supplies the beekeeper, he tends to destroy it with all the bees inside. When you transfer the bee queen to a new hive, you cut off its wings so that it can not fly to its previous hive.
More bad sides to the bee honey industry:
Beekeepers tend to kill bears and badgers that are a threatening factor in the honey they produce because they are also interested in it. In the world, many bears and badgers are killed by beekeepers.
The artificial multiplication of bees for honey production leads to a change in the pollination patterns of the flowers, resulting in damage to the entire ecosystem.
