history in the making
honey bees

What is happening to the world’s bees?

National Wildlife Federation – There are more honey bees on the planet today than at any time in history but North America’s native bees, on the other hand, are in trouble.
Unlike honey bees, more than 90 percent of our nearly 4,000 native bee species live not with other bees in hives but alone in nests carved into soil, wood or hollow plant stems. For all bees, foraging on flowers is a hard life and they need finely tuned senses, spatial awareness, learning and memory.
To preserve our bees we have to improve the environments in which they collect food. It’s up to us to take the steps needed to sustain these precious pollinators of our food for the future.
