PLANT FLOWERS FOR SAFE BEE HABITAT

Bee HabitatAccording to a recent survey by the Xerces Society, nearly one-third of North American bumblebee species are declining.

Wild bees are sensitive to pesticides including the insect-killers used in most major crops, and safe pesticide-free wild bee habitat is disappearing. In the Midwest alone more than 36,000 square miles of wetlands and prairie has been converted to cropland since 2008. We work with rural areas in the Southwest to plant native wildflowers in pesticide-free areas to provide bees safe habitat.

How can you help?

For every $1 you donate with Google One Today we’ll plant one packet of wildflowers that attract and feed bees in pesticide-free areas.

      Bethany,

      Good for you! I’m proud that you have so many bees. You’re doing a lot and you’re only 16! Imagine what you are yet to accomplish the the coming years!

      Bee’s are amazing. I’m glad you like and appreciate them too.

  3. No one ever mentioned a national awareness program. With my novice “stick-to-itivness” I would like to think I could do this on a commercial level but it takes time (how long). I live close to a”Wild Seed Farm”‘ so there many managed plots I heard that even long standing mobile (transportable hives) are not coming back to the hives due a strange virus that is wiping out honey bees.
