I did a Google check to find out all the places that I have done humane bee hives removal from the past. From this record it confirmed that bees are everywhere in Singapore! Each red dot indicate a beehive was relocated. I am sure there are a lot more in the wild. Interesting fact is that, till date there is only one case of fatal bee sting incident in 2014. It was a sad case happened 7 years ago. On the other hand, this shows that keeping bees is really not a risky activity as compare to many other activities we do daily such as driving on the road! But our ecosystem needs bees so can we stop calling pest control to killing the bees when we discovered a beehive please! let's learn about our local honey bees and try to conserve them by coexisting with them. or at most humanely removing them instead of exterminating!

People may think that exterminating bees only killing bees but is it really just that? The impact of the losing of bees could have huge impact to the environment. Lost of pollinators, means lesser pollination work in nature, tre bear less fruits and less food and seed for the plant to propagate, to support the wildlifes. The impact may not be immediate but it is huge.
From the video above, there is another serious problem, the deliberately release of toxic chemical to the environment. The bees were stained with the chemical then flew to other places carrying the toxic chemical. How would other insect or wildlife be affected?what if the bee drop dead into the pond, to nearby water catchment? Would we indirectly consuming? What about the family that live in that unit, the bees are gone but left behind a total contaminated space, how would that affecting the health of everyone or even the next door neighbour?
Would if the toxic can have long term effect to the nerve system, causing autoimmune problem. Would you still choose to exterminate hte bees with spray?
Is the bees really that dangerous that it does not matter even if the contaminants could affect health in the long run?
