The Beekeeper's Lament How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America Free read ¿ 109 Isive reporting in a book perfect for fans of Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation Michael Pollan’s The Botany of Desireand John McPhee’s Oranges Nordhaus’s stunning exposé illuminates one the most critical issues facing the world todayoffering insight information and ultimately hop. A few years ago I was reading bits and pieces about the mystery of the disappearing honeybee when it came up in the news though as with most things the idea of yet another thing going horribly wrong just kind of overwhelmed me and I let it slide by lest my head explodeFast forward upon reading a random article on beekeeping the other day and finding myself fascinated with the whole affair I decided it was time to pick up a few books on the creature I really didn t think I d enjoy this admittedly I ve read way too many books of the variety in which a journalist tags along and reports on someone s life and their role in the focal subject and I ve been shying away from that style lately But once Nordhaus sets the context of the primary beekeeper John Miller he is only drawn upon to supplement the wider story of bees and beekeeping And with great effect His term for the aggressive Africanized bee had me giggling behavior challenged bees as I imagined the bees akin to toddlers running amok in need of shots of ritalin joke and social skills classesIn fact this is currently my favorite style of non fiction book when I want to learn something while also hoping to really enjoy the subject At first I was eager to read about JUST honeybee science and behavior but Nordhaus covers all angles expertly She takes a broad scope covering each topic just enough before transitioning into yet another fascinating aspect Beekeeping history science the environmental politics surrounding pollination monocropping pesticides the contracting of what in nature is a completely natural event the difficult life of a beekeeper bee health or lack thereof the recent scourge of the varroa mite destroyed all feral bee colonies in the US colony collapse disorder honey types means of uality identification and the lack of US government regulation and classification pure honey may be up to 80 percent corn syrupIn addition the history of the bee is an example of how we meddle with and try to control nature for benefit and profit only for it to backfire spectacularly From bringing them over in the first place they are not native to North America to the effort by seedless citrus companies in California to institute bee no fly zones as pollination results in seeded ruined fruit Efforts over the centuries to impregnate ueen bees from clamping the vagina open for insemination to crafting a tiny silver penis I cringe I cringe and I can t help but be slightly affronted for the bee whether in gender solidarity or the lengths they went through to accomplish this I do not know Inbred varroa mite resistant drones that can head off infestations but suck at everything else a bee should do Lawns green deserts monocropping and feeding bees corn syrup while robbing them of honey and the theorizing that the result is malnourished bees that are likely to die en masseMy semi obsession with becoming a beekeeper may pass but I ll certainly be paying attention rather than vaguely deciding I like the flavor of clover honey over that of desert bloom honey In addition I ll never look at my endless tubes of Burt s Bees chapstick the same way again
