Honey Extraction

So what's all the buzz about?  Well, bees of course.  The oft under-appreciated honey bee is responsible for pollinating much of the world's agriculture.  They also produce honey... a favorite of both bears and people.  Given their declining populations due to disease, lack of diet diversity, pesticides and other factors, honey bees have been in the news over the past decade, which makes it more important than ever for bee-keepers around the world to help reinvigorate the honey bee population.  Needless to say, if there were no honey bees, we would all feel the sting.
