It’s the antithesis of maintaining good health. An increase in its consumption, doctors warn, doesn’t spell good news. You are constantly told to be wary of this particular constituent that surprisingly, each and every household in the world has (often, in plenty) and yet, you end up consuming lots of it.
Sugar. Just how much of a sugar should one have has often dominated office discussions, kitchen-table chats and, being part of a free parcel of ‘good health’ advise, that often creeps up on you in liberal doses, isn’t it?
Yet, believe it or not, there’s an awful lot of meaning in keeping at least a tablespoon full of sugar in your garden. And if do carry out the above especially during the summer seasons, then it will do the nature and its ecosystem a world of good.
That said, this may sound like a strange or random kind of advice. How on earth can keeping a tablespoon of sugar outside one’s garden be beneficial to the environment? Well, we were sceptical too, before we learnt the great benefit of doing so.
So it’s a well-established fact that the honeybees are constant, incessant feeders of nearly the entire eco-system. Isn’t it? In fact, so important and vital are the bees to the plank of the ecosystem that if they were to disappear from the face of the earth, then it is said, all of mankind would vanish in 4 years’ time.
How’s that for a fact.
But if, in case, you are still wondering about the importance or connection of keeping a tablespoon of sugar out in the garden, then here’s unravelling the whole plot.
So keeping sugar out in the garden especially during summer months is important so that the bees can feed off on them. Modern science and related researches have come up with an astounding study that the number of bees we have around is constantly fading away; waning away from our world’s natural eco-system.
Given, just how important they are to the very survival of mankind, they are got to be protected. And here’s the connection: they feed on sugar.
“Bees can become tired and they simply don’t have enough energy to return to the hive, which can often result in being swept away.
Sir David Attenborough, who’s a pioneering figure in the realm of media and a naturalist has suggested that the bees are to be urgently attended to as they are the link between mankind’s survival and nature.
In a detailed study that was actually published on vital media platform Mirror, Sir David Attenborough shared some key insights regarding the life and fate of bees, connecting them to the importance of sugar.
“If you find a tired bee in your home, a simple solution of sugar and water will help revive an exhausted bee.
“Simply mix two tablespoons of white, granulated sugar with one tablespoon of water and place on a spoon for the bee to reach.
This important mix of water and sugar actually helps in rehydrating the bees and therefore, caters to the much-needed energy they so badly need. So when are you paying caution to this much-emphasised step?
Perhaps, there is something that all of us can collectively do for mother nature when it does just about everything for us- isn’t it?
