Stop the Horrifying Abuse of Bees for Honey

Target: The Honorable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change

Goal: Protect hundreds of millions of bees from human exploit.

Bees play an essential role in the world. They pollinate flowers to allow fruits and vegetables to grow, and work as a bio indicator, showing us changes in our environment. Unfortunately, bees are mostly recognized for their products: honey, beeswax, bee brood, and many more, while we forget how important they are for us. If all bees suddenly vanished from the planet, all people on earth would only have four years left to live.

Few realize that bees have a functioning nervous system that enables them to feel suffering and pleasure, and people most often disregard them as unconscious creatures. Bees are mainly exploited for the extraction of honey, of which millions of pounds are sold every year. To produce a single teaspoon of honey, it takes twelve worker bees an entire lifetime. In addition to that, bees have to collect pollen from over two million flowers for one pound of honey. Bees labor for countless hours on the production of this sweet substance to feed their young and for their own future nourishment. Humans steal the honey for their own selfish use and pathetically replace it with sugar water that is unfit to sufficiently nourish the bees.

Other human activity also promotes the exploitation of bees and contributes to their harm in several ways, including their killing. These insects have their wings and legs cut off, drones have their heads crushed to extract their semen for artificial insemination, the bees, and especially the queens, are forced into unnatural behavior, with many killed or left to die as an inconvenience.

Honey is a completely unnecessary food and can easily be replaced by plant-based items. Furthermore, the medicinal qualities of it are disputed, and can be substituted by herbal medicines.

Torturing, mutilating, exploiting, and killing bees is accepted to maximize profit. They deserve humane treatment and support in maintaining their population. Sign this petition to end the abuse of the under-valued bees of the world.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Honorable Mr. Wilkinson,

Billions of bees are valued only for their honey, while we neglect to perceive that there could be no human life without them. Sugar water does not sufficiently sustain them, but is used to viciously steal the honey they slaved for and gave their lives to make.

Instead of a peaceful existence, bees have to endure torture and mutilation for human gain. The honey stolen from them is obsolete as a sweetener and medicinal ingredient. None of the products that are made by bees are needed by humans, but they are essential for the bees’ existence. There should be alternative means implemented to maintain the bee population in the world without exploiting them for honey and byproducts.

I urge you to end the exploit of bees and ban honey production for human use.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Monstrous monstrous evil, heartbreaking and horrific, karma is theirs – I feel you, poor lost innocent souls; their blood on your souls

    Some heartbreaks can never be unseen, some horrors never unheard – PLEASE GOD

    • Amen. I pray every night for God to send evil humans to hell where they belong. Anything they do to an animal on earth will be replicated back to them for all eternity in hell. Thats what I pray for.

  2. Agave sweetener is a good substitute instead of honey. Bees shouldn’t suffer like this.
