WHO IS PROJECT APIS M.?
The organization’s name derives from the scientific name for the western honeybee Apis mellifera and was founded by beekeepers and growers as a grassroots initiative to target solving honey bee health concerns. Project Apis m. supports scientific honey bee research that focuses on understanding the problems bees are facing. Since 2006, PAm has become the largest honey bee nonprofit in the United States, funding many projects that have resulted in new and important discoveries and created valuable tools for beekeepers.learn more
WHY HONEY BEES ARE IMPORTANTDid you know that honey bees and other pollinators are responsible for pollinating a full third of the world’s food crops? Honey bees collect nectar, a sugary syrup, from flower blossoms. In doing so, they inadvertently track pollen from plant to plant, which fertilizes the flowers and allows them to produce fruit. They then carry the nectar back to their hive to the worker bees who turn it into honey. Lucky for us, bees make more honey than they need for their own survival, so beekeepers are able to harvest the excess for us to enjoy!
Why Honey Stinger Loves Using Honey
Honey keeps athletes buzzing to the finish line—it is nature’s ideal performance fuel. The special combination of carbohydrates and sugars in honey are easy to digest before, during and after athletic activity. Plus, honey’s relatively low glycemic index gives a burst of quick, steady energy without the spikes and crashes you get from other simple sugars.
