Bees: A Mans Best Friend
Written by Frankie Paterson
It seems as though when bees thrive they have a staggeringly positive impact on the pollination rate of crops and flowering plants. Bees are the greatest pollinators on earth and their work contributes to one-third of global crop production. Even fruit quality and yield can be affected. One study done in 2014 suggested that insect pollination enhanced average crop yield between 18 and 71% depending on the crop.
How can you help?
1. Grow more flowers, shrubs & trees
2. Let it grow wild
3. Cut grass less often
4. Don’t disturb insect nests and hibernation spots
5. Think carefully about whether to use pesticides
