The Zombie Bees Are Here

Zombie Bees

Well it’s finally happened.  The Zombie Bees are here and they are now starting to invade the east coast of the U.S.  First there were the Zombie Ants which I’m pretty sure I have already blogged about in the past now this.  I’m telling you the zombie virus is pressing hard to make an explosive takeover and when it does it won’t be pretty.

The zombie bee was first seen in 2008 and then in Nov of last year was spotted in a bee keepers hive in Vermont.  What happens is a fly called Apocephalus borealis attaches itself to the bee and injects its eggs, which grow inside the bee.  Scientists believe it causes neurological damage resulting in erratic, jerky movement and night activity, “like a zombie,”

It is said that it would be a “game changer” if these flies could hatch from dead bees and complete their life cycle inside the hive.  it would be another nail in the coffin for honeybees in the northern hemisphere”  Personally I don’t see this as a bad thing, I don’t like bees they are demons and should be exterminated anyway but this is just another example in a long line of examples that the zombie apocalypse is upon us.

      I have no problem with that. I like honey but I rarely eat it anyways and besides with today’s technology I’m sure we could make fake honey. We make fake sugar, fake salt, fake boobs, fake facebook accounts and so on. Really no honey wouldn’t hurt my feelings.

    in regards comments on bees, you’re somewhat clueless, aren’t you? (don’t take this the wrong way, i am clueless about many things (the wife would say “most”)) — have you ever heard of a method or process by which plants (trees, bushes, large plants, small ones) propagate? it’s called pollination — and basically, not only will there be no more honey, many if not most plant species will die out.

      Okay. I have to address several things here. First the point of the blog was about “zombie” bees not my views on bees. I have another post I did on Bees/Wasps/hornets where I expressed my views on these creatures and why but I will give a brief overview just for the sake of it here. I have been stung by bees, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, and many other variations throughout my travels around the world and yes they are different but they are all related and out of them the bees are the only ones who make honey. Now my worst experience came as a teenager when some yellow jackets had a nest underground and someone ran a riding lawnmower over their nest and that ENTIRE nest decided it was going to attack me. Luckily I was not allergic otherwise I would be dead. Needless to say it was VERY traumatic. I was 11 at the time and I am 41 now. Aside from the fact they all look like demon spawn I have no use for them. Matter of fact if I kill any species of wasp/bee/whatever in my house/work I put a toothpick or unfolded paperclip through their dead corpses and stick them in the window as warning to their friends as to what will happen to any of them if they get brave like he did.

      Now as for honey. I love honey, I however don’t eat it but maybe a spoon full once every couple years so no honey is not going to make me cry but for those who feel this world has to have it, I truly believe our science is advanced enough to synthesize it if we truly wanted too.

      Now as for being clueless no I am not. I totally understand the effect pollination has on the ecosystem. I also know that when bees pollinate flowers as well as butterflies, and other bugs it is not on purpose but by accident. They are there for food and that pollen sticks to their bodies and is transferred when they fly from plant to plant or flower to flower. Now as I quickly stated, bees are not the only thing that pollinate plants, flowers, grass, etc. Moths, Bats, Birds such as hummingbirds, and flies also help pollinate and all by accident as well. Mammals also pollinate them, to include humans. Yet again this is by accident, it is not done purposely. Plants that are pollinated by animals are normally brightly colored and have a strong smell that attracts the animal/mammal. Wind however is the biggest way these things get pollinated. Most flowers though are bisexual and actually self fertilize and do not need help to be pollinated. So take the bee out of the equation, you aren’t hurting the pollination process at all. There are more than enough other factors still in play to help the process along, even when they aren’t needed in the first place for the process to happen.
