30 Bananas a Day!

I've a few friends who keep bees and harvest the honey to sell. The bees are not harmed in the harvesting, it is done completely ethically where the bees are drawn out of the hive, the honey harvested, and the bees returned.
The friends make sure nothing goes to waste by brewing a honey beer with the honey wax, which again, is a local independant businesses.
These bees would probably not be alive if it wasn't for this little project, and purchasing the honey allows it to continue. We are all aware of the diminishing bed population. In fact, buying almond products contributes to their decline and supports their abuse. This project allows them and the immediate ecosystem to begin reparations.

Obviously thre is much more to this debate than mentioned here...
Opinions?

How are the bees drawn out of the hive? Only method I've heard of is by smoking them.

They put a white sheet infront of the hive and the bees swarm on it... I don't quite understand it, I'm not an expert, but its like they abandon the hive as they would to search for another.
Til they told me about this, I'd only heard of smoking then too

Using bees for their honey and using honey, selling honey, supporting others to use honey is not supported on this site...

Some good reading here: Why I Don’t Eat Honey or Bee Products

some excellent articles and videos on why not to use honey here:

Thank you for your concern, though I do not eat this or any other honey. I'm sorry for any offence, but I merely wanted to get some discussion going and see what people knew about the abuse of bees in plant-based food production and how they considered this alongside their dropping numbers in the wild.

It's still theft. Bees use that honey to line their hive and feed their young. They are given sugar water instead. Just imagine spending all day on a time consuming meal only to have someone bigger than you snatch it away right when you're about to enjoy the fruits of your labor. That's what it's like for bees. Also breeding any animal just to exploit them is wrong. Honey bees also displace other bees like bumblebees and fuck up the natural ecosystem.
