Honeybees pollinate more than 100 food crops in North America. That means our survival depends largely on these tiny insects. But a few simple acts can ensure the well-being of bees—and ours—in the future:
Plant bee-friendly gardens.
Contact a beekeeper when we come across a colony in the wild.
Support local apiaries such as Paradis Valley Honey.
