You make the Difference!

1/3 of the food we eat comes from bees and other pollinators.  This past winter of 2012-2013, 1/3 of all the honey bees died prematurely in the U.S.  In addition, recent bumble bee deaths are under investigations. Improper application of pesticides is being blamed - that is something that we must all change.
So what can you do to help?







Be Smart about Pest Problems

  • Use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) around the home.  Carefully diagnose your pest problem, and, before you apply a pesticide, make sure the pest population has reached a level where control is necessary.
  • Use proper application practices when applying any pesticide, this is very important in keeping pollinators (and people) safe.
  • If you choose to use a pesticide, read and follow ALL label directions carefully – use the proper rate (not more or less) at the right time for the correct target pests, and avoid re-applying unnecessarily.
  • Reduce pesticide use

Don’t be afraid!

  • Don't be afraid when you see a bee - bees are your hard working friends. In fact, when you don't see bees around flowers that's when you should be concerned. Download our brochure for more of the facts, “Inviting Bees to Your Property: No Fear of Stings!
