Question About the Bee Situation… Seriously

So, I love raw local honey. And while I am scared of bees (yes, I know I’m a big pussy),when one gets in the house, I take a deep breath and capture the little guy and set him free outside.

I do this for two reason: 1) They are really necessary for the earth, and life in general. They serve a major, undeniable purpose on this planet, 2) In spite of my fear of being stung, I love their little furry bodies with their black and yellow stripes.

So, are we fucking the bees royally by buying honey? Or is a matter of where we’re getting it from? For example, if we buy some mass produced crap at Kroger’s, is that different from buying it from a local farm run by a family who takes care of their bees.

I like to imagine that beekeepers treat their bees like pets. I’m also really weird and should probably research this.
