It has been said that if the bees ever go extinct live will only have four years to live.
If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man. If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live Albert Einstein
Just recently a large load of bees were scattered across the highway in my hometown of Washington state. I am presuming they were on their way to northern area farms in western Washington and mostly Skagit County.
Today the Skagit Valley is supplying nearly 95% of the U.S. supply of table beet seed, 75% of the U.S. supply of spinach seed and approximately 8% of the spinach seed used throughout the world. Skagit Valley farmers are producing approximately 25% of the world’s cabbage seed and 50% of the world’s beet seed.3 More tulips, daffodils, and iris bulbs are produced in the Skagit Valley than in any other county in the United States. Additionally, approximately 50 million cut flowers are grown in greenhouses and fields in the Skagit Valley and approximately 95 percent of the red potatoes grown in Washington State are from Skagit County.

As a Theologist, I view everything from a Biblical perspective and with signs of the end time upon us I am seeing many things tying in the call of the end days. The biggest thing that will happen is a famine will come to the land and with California in a historic drought I never hear what the Bees will do, if we have no crops we have nothing for bees to pollinate if they do not pollinate they die if they die we die..
Now we are seeing issues in WA State with its largest crops and with just a few minutes of research, I see the same thing nationwide.
I am not a bee keeper but I see the writing on the wall I would just hope others will see the issue before it is too late.
