Why Pollinators Are Important

Why Pollinators Are Important

Why are bees so important? Honey bees are pollinators, meaning that they pollinate flowers by transferring pollen between flowers. This is crucial to life on our planet, because many plants cannot reproduce without the help of pollinators. 

Despite being so essential to our way of life here on earth, bees are on the decline. According to surveying, beekeepers around the US lost 45.5% of their managed honey bee colonies in 2020-2021.

But there are so many ways you can help:

  • Say no to pesticide in your gardens and flowerbeds
  • Plant more pollinator-friendly plants and native plants in your gardens. Here's an incredible guide to get started.
  • Skip the bark mulch. Bees need access to well-drained soil to access nests.
