Honeybees are disappearing, but you can help! Why should we care?

One-third of our food comes from honeybees pollinating those plants. No honeybees, no plants. Visit this website to find out how you can help.

At your local store or farmer’s market, find out if there is anyone rescuing hives and selling local honey. Buy local honey and beeswax candles.

If you have a swarm that ends up in your yard or attic, like I did a few years ago, call a bee rescuer, not an exterminator. They will come and collect the bees and take them somewhere to live and pollinate another day. You can also grow a honeybee garden.
