The bee population is declining in North America, and Columbus is no exception. A loss of nesting and flowering habitats and the overuse of pesticides are major contributors to the decrease in the bee population.
With our growing urban culture, the space for flower growth is dwindling. To combat this, researchers suggest that landscaping areas be chosen carefully in urban settings. It is important for our environment and for human health that we find a way to integrate flowers and other plants into our cities for the bee population.
Join us today as we discuss beekeeping and the health of the bee population.
