Without honeybees, and other pollinators, however, most of the fruit and vegetables we eat on a daily basis wouldn’t be possible. This is a big deal! 326 million people in the US alone have to eat every day! However, we’ve lost a total of 40% of the US’s commercial honeybees in the last 10 years.
However dire the situation feels, there are things we can do individually to help our local pollinators survive (and hopefully thrive).
