Bees are central to my job at a candlemaker. As such, colony collapse has had a direct effect on me and my livelihood. My company uses some absurd amount (like 40%) of Canada's entire beeswax production. If you want to know how to attract more honey bees to your residence, you can read a great little infosheet here. Honey bees are pretty non-aggressive so long as you don't act like a douche. They come into the shop all the time. I've had them walk on my arms, my head. Little dudes are usually just thirsty! Give them a water feature away from busy areas and watch your garden grow with life!
