Did you know that honey bees are responsible for 1 in every 3 mouthfuls of food that we eat?
Honey bees are responsible for 1 in every 3 mouthfuls of food that we eat! And 70% of our global crops are naturally animal pollinated by (primarily) bees, but also butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, and more. When all the bees die off, so will all of us!
Want to keep pollinators happy?
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO:
- Make you garden a pollinator paradise (with wildflowers and nectar-rich plants)
- Don't spray bee-harming neonicotinoid pesticides (and spread the word to your local garden shops about how harmful those kinds of pesticides are to bees)
- Support local farms and producers who have shown their commitment to protecting pollinators
