Bees and the Honey Crop – Conservation Report

Bees and the honey crop are stung by a record drought in CA.  This drought has lasted three years and is the latest blow to honeybees which pollinate one third of US crops.  The price for honey has nearly doubled.

To help bees, keep your dandelions and clover.  Use natural products on your lawn and plant hosta, cone flower, cleome, monarda, yarrow, honeysuckle, blueberry and raspberry bushes, cherry, willow, maple and chestnut trees
