Near the French town of Ribeauville, beekeepers began noticing their bees producing oddly-colored honey. They believe it is due to a nearby M&M factory whose residue waste may be causing the color changes. Who knows what that means for bees and their honey production, but I’d take a guess and say it’s not a good thing. See more photos of candy colored honey below the cut:
When beekeepers noticed bees arriving at their hives stained with brown, blue, and green dye, they traced it back to the local factory. The theory is: the bees are choosing to collect the sugary residue from container waste rather than seeking out local pollen simply because it’s easier. [via Buzzfeed]
I find this amazing, beautiful and terrifying all at once. What do you think, Lovelies?
