Hey, it's Nikki Trueblood! I'm a current junior at FHS, and I was an officer for the 2019/20 school year. Here is a video I made about honeybees because my dad and I are backyard beekeepers!
I've learned so much about honeybees since becoming a beekeeper, and I had so much fun sharing some pretty cool facts about them in the video! Even though bees can be a little scary sometimes, they generally are pretty docile and won't hurt you unless you provoke them somehow. Hopefully this video will show you that bees aren't something to be afraid of; they are our friends! Bees are so important for the pollination of the food we eat, so we wouldn't be able to survive without them! Unfortunately, honeybee hives have been dying from something called colony collapse disorder that is caused by multiple variables including pesticides, poor nutrition, and varroa mites, so the bees need our help!
