Save the Bees

Save the Bees

Save the Bees  On my walkabouts over the last 5 years, the decrease in the bee population has been quite noticeable.  Tonight’s walkabout was a good example.  In several miles, I noticed less than a dozen or two bees.  Normally, there’s way too many to even count.

Save the Bees  Bees are in danger.  For several decades, beekeepers have observed the sudden disappearance of bees and a decline in honeybee colonies.  Bee-killing pesticides appear to pose the most direct risk to bees.  We need the bees to pollinate crops and flowers.  A third of all our food depends on them.   A world without pollinators would be devastating.  Use bee tolerate pesticides.  Plant native wildflowers and flowering shrubs.  Trees such as apples, pears, plums, and cherries as well as shrubs like blueberries are excellent food for bees.
