HONEY BEES PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN OUR ECOSYSTEMS AND FOOD SUPPLY
Bees have been struggling in recent years due to many unnatural stresses which include habitat disruption, monocultural & genetically engineered food provisions, and invasive pathogens & parasites. One way to help bees and our local ecosystems thrive is by installing and caring for hives, but there are other ways you can help as well.
