The Buzz on Bees

The global honeybee population is decreasing due to pollution, loss of habitat and rising water temperatures. The consequence of losing our bees is severe – no other species plays a significant role in producing our fruits and vegetables like the bee. Beekeepers have noticed the decrease in honey bee populations since 2006. California’s honey production was cut nearly in half in just six years. The drought has also affected bees – less rain means less flowers to pollinate.

Here’s what you can do to help save the bees.

  1. Reduce your use of pesticides. The chemicals can poison bees when they drift onto blooms or weeds.
  2. Be(e) attentive and buy local: organic fruits, vegetables, and honey. This is an awesome way to patronize beekeepers in your area.
  3. Plant: flowers, greens, blooms. No matter where you are, there’s something you can grow to help bees stay abuzz.
