Sweet travel: Hotels, an airport and an airline with hives

If you learn that your hotel has hives, stay put. Many hotels have been installing beehives and adopting bees by the thousands, and the sweet honey being harvested is making its way onto restaurant menus and into cocktails, gift-shop items and spa treatments.

This is a great idea for bees,but much has be done in order to save the bees.The GMO's and pesticides need to be outlawed.We need to get rid of the toxic chemicals that are being sprayed on vegetables,because that's whats killing the bees.

I'm a large bee keeper in Sequim, Wa. I also bring in package bees to the North West an Alaska
I concentrate my Bees on Blackberrry nectar an Buck wheat nectar in Sequim. I sell everything I extract.  I also collect pollen.  Great stuff from the hive! 
If you want some honey contact me on my web sight Alaskabeeproducts.net.

Don't let Met-Life know that you have bee hives in your yard or they will cancel your home-owners policy. Because Bees are a danger to anyone who comes close to your home.

Fantastic idea!!! Since bee populations have been dwindling, this may be the start of a resurgence.  Going one step further, if locals plant flower boxes or small gardens with bee appealing plants, it may help restore the bee population.
