I have tried, during the last few years, to grow more 'bee-friendly' flowering plants, and saw some bees during this last disastrous summer, despite the rain.
Well done you Sylvia - our bees seem to be thriving despite the poor summer. But almost all the honey has had to be left for them to eat for this coming winter. They deserve it though. Fascinating creatures and so clever.
the honeybees are all over my turk's cap now. you may have obe of tgese hardy plants. just come sand dig them.
This should no longer be necessary. It's just the big $$ involved that keeps this happening. Pass this one along!
Honeybees are a vital part of the circle of life.. they pollinate our crops which helps to feed us and our children. Their declining numbers due to being poisoned by neonicotinod insecticides is an atrocity.. it must stop! Please sign the petition to ban the use of neonicotinod insecticides in the USA before they completely devastate the honeybee populations here. Thank you..
If that is what it is doing to the bees what is it doing to us?
We need bees. We can't raise crops or flowers without them. Mosquitos, flies, roaches just spread diseases. Protect the bees! BEE AWARE!
We need bees to pollinate our crops, trees and flowers.
Yes, Classical example of man killing out of greed and stupidity!
we need bees in order to enjoy fruits and flowers that we humans simply think grow like money on trees. no more greed!
This year, some of the vegetables in my garden had difficulty with pollination. I have to think it's about less bees in my area. Please, sign!
