    I really do. I plan on starting a couple of hives this coming spring.

    Why do I love them? Why, for their precise navigation and flight skills, why else?

    yes, but it is misleading to think they rely on honey bees. They are important, but it is a false narrative that we would die without them.

    That being said, we need to do what we can to help them flourish and I encourage everyone to look into bee husbandry if for nothing else but to make some great honey wine with the byproduct!

    The meme doesn't say that plants rely on bees for pollination.

    No, but that has been the implication -- in some cases an outright statement -- from these kinds of memes.
