Lately, I’ve been doing more and more research on honey bees. Between Oct. 1 and March 31, Oregon beekeepers reported a 21.1 percent loss in colonies of the crucial crop pollinators, according to a survey by Oregon State University. Because of this, I have been trying to figure out what I can do to help. As it turns out, the best thing to do (that I am able to do) is to plant some bee friendly plants. How easy is that?! Honey bees rely on garden flowers when there is a lack of agricultural crops. It may not make a huge impact but I am going to do what I can to help. bees
