On the point of bees, if you look up the bee sanctuary website you will see repeated calls for the cessation of spraying of chemicals, it is killing our bees and other insects. And still despite all the calls from so many different sources, widespread spraying is happening in our city and county. If you are against the chemical spraying of verges and around the base of trees make your voice heard, campaign to stop it, pick up the phone and request it stops be it in your housing estate or on your public roads.
