I don’t see many Honey Bees back here in the jungle, most of the time. They do come when the Tangelo Tree and the Elder Berries are in bloom. I know they are in the blossoms of the palm trees but they are so high I can’t see them. A few come to the Bottlebrush. This one was here in April.
My neighbor has a couple hives and his honey is good. If you have allergies, it helps to eat a little honey everyday. But, it must be local honey. The bees need to be picking up the pollen that you will be exposed to. Many people believe bee venom is good for arthritis, multiple sclerosis and other diseases.
He’s working very hard to help my Tangelo Tree produce well. I’m surprised any show up with all the Orange Groves nearby.
