Why Support Honey Bees?

About 1 in every 3 bites of food we eat is a result of pollination by animals, mainly bees. Bees are responsible for 80% of pollination that occurs. Honey bees and wild bees both rely on nectar and pollen for healthy and productive populations. Keeping honey bee colonies healthy has become increasingly challenging over the last decade due to an array of factors. Remarkably, providing honey bees with better forage (flowers) will also provide nesting resources for native bees and habitat for a diversity of wildlife. We do realize that there are still a lot of snow but time flies and suddenly we will start mowing our lawn, so here are a few bee-friendly mowing practices:

– Leave patches un-mowed so not all pollinator forage (flowers) is mowed down at once.
– Mowing when the majority of plants are past bloom will reduce risk to pollinators.
– Mow at a slower speed and during the day when pollinators and other wildlife are active, so they have a better chance to escape.
– Set mower at 5 cm to encourage perennial flowers to make good root development.

Let’s all do our share to help the bees continue their very important work with nature.
