Bees

There's a lot of buzz about bees lately.  That's because bees play an essential role in our ecosystem by helping to pollinate one third of all our food, so their recent and rapid decline has raised concern.  It has been found that our heavy pesticide use has taken a big toll on bees, so people have stepped up by addressing pesticide use, growing a diversity of plants, and creating bee habitats in their own backyards. If you've met a beekeeper, you know how much they love their bees!
