I don't see why we should steal all the bees' hard work :) Doesn't seem fair. They are very intelligent too.

I'm also someone who is repulsed by the thought of eating honey (and any animal secretion) though.

Shellac is something else to avoid.

I think honey has less of an impact than other sweeteners. The fields need to be plowed, instantly killing thousands of insects. Then they spray the fields to kill any that are left over or decide to land there in the future. I guess you could argue for organic however they just use organic pesticides and not synthetic. I think you are having way more of an impact, but you just think it's less because you never see it happening. Vegans really have to draw the line at some point or at least figure out which is the lesser of two evils.

Mild bee disturbance vs insect holocaust I really don't see it as being close.

My current opinion on honey is that yes I will eat it. Prove me wrong and I will stop.

I love honey, it is very nutritional. However since the bees are in grave danger and we humans are in grave danger as a result I think the more we help them and the less we interfere with their process the better. If that means we don't eat honey, well than maybe that is what needs to be done.

To me it is more a religious belief where you are karmically less deserving of owning your own home from eating honey and therefore restricting a bee's access to its own habitat

I hear maple syrup is good as sweetener alternatives go. I definitely prefer the taste.
