Default Retinking the crualty of tapping trees

I was searching sites last night about collecting a bee hive from a rotten log and came across this.

7 Reasons Why Buying Honey Hurts Bees | Food | PETA Kids

I decided to think this whole concept thru to the next obvious conclusion and that is that sugar makers are a bunch of savages running around the woods with cordless drills sticking drill bits into defenseless trees. Bees have the option of flying away but a tree has no option but too stay and take the brutality. Look how would you like it if someone used a dull drill bit that was just used on your neighbor to put in a Catheter without the slightest of lubrication. now consider being a big tree and having a second tap inserted. What are the options.............................

THE HORRER THE HORRER

Hurting the bees? What size tap do you use on them? Now, I'm not a beekeeper (because my wife won't let me), but couldn't you use a smaller bit on them to cause less damage?

Yeah - but look at the bottom line- if kids boycott honey - we'll sell more syrup.

"There are also tons of humane alternatives to honey, like agave nectar, rice syrup, molasses, maple syrup, and dried fruits and fruit concentrates that can help keep your diet sweet and bee-free!"

I'm sure Rice Paddies and Sugar Cane plantations are soooooo much better for insects.

Where do they come up with this stuff?

Ok Haynes....go sit and the corner and take a time out. What ever possessed you to post such porn on a family friendly site. PETA Born is banned or should be.

Slaps Haynes in his old age face
