Mesindustööstus

Planeedi toitmiseks on meil võimas põllumajandus ja selle põllumajanduse monokultuuride käimashoidmiseks oleme orjastanud mesilased - ilma "sund tolmeldamiseta" oleks suurte põllumaade tootlikus liiga madal st. suure põllu harimine oleks mõttetu. Mesilased on nii vanad olendid, et nende ja taimede vaheline sümbioos on muutunud lahutamatuks ning meil on hea võimalus seda kuritarvitada ... et siis ... toit ei ole alati toit ja mesi ei ole alati öko ...

Pollinator decline

Taavi @ 30.07.2010 22:50 | Registreerunud: 01.04.2003

As plantings have grown larger, the need for concentrated pollinators at bloom time has grown. At the same time populations of many pollinators have been declining, and this decline has become a major environmental issue today. Pollination management seeks to protect, enhance, and augment agricultural pollination.

For example, feral honey bee populations in the US have dropped about 90% in the past 50 years, except for the Southwest where they have been replaced by Africanized bees. At the same time managed honey bee colonies have dropped by about two thirds. On the other hand, this has been offset by a natural increase in native pollinator populations in parts of the US, where such had been partially displaced by the invasive honey bees imported from Europe.

Monoculture needs very high populations of bees at bloom, but can make the area quite barren, or even toxic when the bloom is done.
The study of pollinator decline is also interesting to some scientists, as bees have the potential to become a keystone indicator species of environmental degradation. Any changes in their abundance and diversity will influence the abundance and diversity of the prevailing plant species. This is a mutual dependency as bees rely on a steady nectar source and pollen source throughout the year to build up their hive.

Urban or backyard beekeeping

Related to natural beekeeping, urban beekeeping is an attempt to revert to a less industrialized way of obtaining honey by utilizing small-scale colonies that pollinate urban gardens. Urban apiculture has undergone a renaissance in the 2000s. Paris, Berlin, London, Tokyo and Washington, D.C., are among beekeeping cities. Until 2010, beekeeping was banned in New York City and punishable with a $2,000 fine. Urban beekeeping is commonly practiced in areas that have a pesticide ban. This includes Paris, as well as 156 municipalities in Canada and 3 of 10 Canadian provinces. Beekeeping was illegal in Vancouver until 2003, for example, but by 2010 there were bees on the roof of Vancouver City Hall.
