Abuzz about Bees

One in every three bites of food comes from crops that are pollinated by honey bees. Yet in recent years, honey bees and other pollinators have been declining at alarming rates. Scientists have linked pollinator declines to pesticide use, sparking debate about how to avert potential catastrophe. Farmers and gardeners can play a crucial role in ensuring healthy pollinator populations by incorporating organic practices that are not pesticide-intensive. Pollinator insects need sustainable habitat in order to reverse their plight. Learn how to become involved in local, state and federal efforts, and how you can support organic and sustainable beekeeping practices.
