How You Can Help
We thank the public for their concern about the plight of our honey bees. Researchers are working hard to solve the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of our little friends. You can do your part to help the honey bee population by doing the following:
- Create a bee-friendly garden with plants that attract honey bees. Most any blooming plants attract bees, especially ones that have a sweet aroma.
- Educate neighbors, schools, community groups, and your state and national legislators about the severe situation the honey bees and our food supply are facing.
- Reduce herbicide and pesticide use. Choose bee-friendly pest control and application methods.
- Help researchers find a solution to Colony Collapse Disorder, varroa mites, and other challenges honey bees face by donating funds to organizations such as the Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees.
