The Demise of Tupelo Honey?

The most famous honey in the world could be disappearing.

Tupelo Honey only comes from the Wewahitchka area of Gulf County, where bees gather nectar from White Tupelo trees on the banks of the Apalachicola River.

A loss of wetlands combined with an increased use of pesticides is killing the bees.

Rising demands for water in Georgia and Alabama, plus river-straightening efforts by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have lowered river levels by almost two feet.

Florida has been battling Georgia and Alabama since the early 1990s for increased water flow.
