Are honey bees a renewable resource?
1 Answer | add yours
Yes, honey bees are a renewable resource.
A renewable resource can be defined as one that can reproduce itself naturally over a period of time that is relatively short in human terms. This means, for example, that oil is not a renewable resource. More oil could be made naturally, but this process will happen on a geological time scale, not a human time scale. But honey bees are not like that. Honey bees reproduce themselves naturally and quickly. So long as they are able to do this, they will remain a renewable resource.
