World Bee Day 2022

May 20 is World Bee Day, a day to recognize and support the incredible service that bees provide for us. One in every third bite you take is because a worker bee provided the pollination of that food free of charge! Imagine what your life would be like without these invaluable insects.

Bee populations are threatened worldwide. Please don’t use pesticides, esp. neonicotinoids, and encourage friends, retailers and nurseries to do the same.
