The Scariest Halloween Stories Are the Ones that Could Come True

As a beekeeper, I could not resist. This thought does frighten me.

12x12 marble-like tile. I stained it with some India Ink I had in the house. The texture of the tile is not smooth (kind of bumpy) or shiny; I wasn’t sure I’d be able to wipe off all the excess ink.

Stealing bees is awful!

Gee, this thread is a real buzz kill.

Looks great! (Definitely worth waking everyone up for!) :wink:

The design is really lovely.

If it’s comforting at all, honeybees aren’t native to America, so some researchers theorize that the end of honeybees would actually be good for native pollinators, because of less competition for pollen and because honeybees are, like, the European explorers of diseases.

I’d be real sad about the lack of honey, though. And real unexcited about a sweat bee population explosion.

I’m with you there.

And a tiny bit less enthusiastic about the expensive aspects of a large change to our food web…

Anyway, awesome tile choice.

A gorgeous tile! The stolen bee story was pretty scary though—appropriate for Halloween I guess.
