Habitat loss is a leading cause of pollinator population declines. Bees, birds, bats, small animals, butterflies, moths, beetles, flies, and wasps can all act as pollinators. Approximately 80% of the plants in the world benefit from pollinators visiting flowers. Honey bees, along with wild and native bees, pollinate at least one third of the world's food crops.
Honey bee populations are estimated to be half of what they were in the 1940's. Besides being critical for the survival of the species, beekeeping is a calming and fascinating hobby for the whole family. Improve pollination in your crops and gardens. Invest in your property. Increase pollinator habitat in your community. Be a part of the solution.
