10+ years of non-violent bee removal, rescue, and education
The American Honey Bee Protection Agency serves to pollinate minds and convey the importance of saving wild honey bees from extinction through the integration of wild bees into urban environments.
We save people from bees and bees from people through no-kill beehive rescue, bee abatement, and public education. We build organic gardens in the sky and install rescued beehives on high-rises and rooftops. We educate the public about the importance of protecting the wild honey bee from extinction.
In efforts to combat colony collapse disorder (CCD), most traditional beekeepers turned to the commercialized process of mass-producing honey bees. The answer to saving the dwindling population of honey bees is not merely to breed more, however.
Wild bees are capable of foraging for themselves, and only the strong survive, producing healthier colonies and natural pollinators for the planet. Commercial bees, on the other hand, cannot forage for themselves, meaning they must always be tended to, and typically they are fed high fructose corn syrup, rather than the nectar of flowers and vegetation. Additionally, commercial bees do not follow the laws of natural selection, leading to sick bees being bred, and as much as 90% of commercial bee colonies dying off each season. It is our hope to inform the general public about the importance of wild honey bees in our ecosystem.
It is a myth for individuals to believe that merely because they live in urban or suburban environments they cannot partake in the mission of saving wild bees and we are out to prove that. While as a whole, AHBPA encourages environmental conservation for all the beautiful nectar collectors, we also realize the necessity and ecologically friendly impact of bringing the wild bees back to places taken over by human infrastructure. Focusing on the integration of wild bees in urban environments, we serve to protect one of the worlds most important species, while bringing the magic of wild honey bees to the city.
