"...see thou hurt not the oil and the wine"

March 1, 2007

"And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." Revelation 6:5, 6

Imagine, if you can, being a beekeeper in charge of about 100 million bees. One morning you go to tend the hives only to find about 50 million bees at home. The missing bees never return. What a 'whod-un-it' this is.

"In 24 states throughout the country, beekeepers have gone through similar shocks as their bees have been disappearing inexplicably at an alarming rate, threatening not only their livelihoods but also the production of numerous crops, including California almonds, one of the nation’s most profitable.

“I have never seen anything like it,” Mr. Bradshaw, 50, said from an almond orchard here beginning to bloom. “Box after box after box are just empty. There’s nobody home.”'

“It worries me because we need 'em to put the food on our table,” said Williams. “For every three mouthfuls of food we consume, this little insect is responsible for one directly, the other two indirectly."

Olea europaea L., family Oleaceae


Wind is considered the primary agent in the transfer of olive pollen. Honey bees visit the trees for pollen, and the general knowledge of bee activity on other plants would indicate that if they moved freely from plant to plant they would effectively transfer some pollen between varieties. Should insignificant wind movement - in the proper direction - occur during flowering so that it would fail to transfer the pollen adequately then the activity of honey bees could supplement wind activity.

Honey bees do not collect olive pollen as avidly as they do that of other plants. To create heavy olive flower visitation, might require a relatively heavy concentration of honey bee colonies in or near the grove. There is no information on the concentration that might be desired. Studies in this area would be productive.

All commercial varieties of grapes are self-fruitful and are pollinated by wind. It is not necessary to provide honeybees for pollination.
