The local honey hives are important for the natural ecosystem

I am starting to hear more stories about the mining operations at the center of the state.

I was told that it’s mostly phosphorous, but I wonder if that’s all they’re taking out of the Earth.

Regardless of their aims, our entire ecosystem in this state is suffering greatly from the extensive mining. It’s corrupting the water tables and the aquifers underground and that’s poisoning our drinking water as well. It worries me what this place will be like when I’m old and my children have children of their own. I already know of several rivers and lakes further inland that are now so severely polluted that you can’t even swim in them, let alone eat any of the fish if you decided to cast out a line. One of the few rays of hope in my community’s natural ecosystem are the local honey hives. There is a cooperative of beekeepers who all contribute money towards using space at a shared location for their personal bees and hives. Although the bee populations are capable of mixing, it creates a huge honey bee population which is fantastic for farming. The beekeepers also sell the honey harvested from these hives and it has turned our city into an area known for its delicious honey. Some of the beekeepers also offer free bee removal and bee relocation services. They will drive to your home and remove entire hives, free of charge. They get more honey bees in the process while your bee “problem” is corrected with any slain bees. Everyone wins in this situation.
