A Wild Island Apiaries spokesperson told Bernews, “We’re happy to offer an option for people to shop local and sustainable when shopping for their loved ones this Valentine’s Day. In doing so, not only are they supporting local businesses, but they’re helping to keep Bermuda’s bees buzzing.

“Consumers may not be aware, but given the environmental challenges that the honey bee faces worldwide, without the constant care from beekeepers it would only be a matter of time before our bees disappeared.

“The honey bee locally is facing challenges from loss of habitat and constant pest pressure from the recently introduced varroa mite, which weakens bees and transmits viruses and disease – which left unchecked run rampant and destroy colonies.”
