 If we destroyed the colony to harvest honey there
 would be no bees for next year, and beekeepers are
 incredibly careful to keep their bees healthy and

 and it stops the hive from becoming honey-bound,

 feed the bees plenty to make sure they survive. We
 also make sure that pests are controlled, bees are
 treated for disease, and the hive is weatherproof and
 in good repair, all things that wild bees struggle with.
 Keeping bees in properly managed hives where they
 don't starve or die from preventable disease is much

 and they're far too important to be left alone.
