To All People Interested in Honeybees
The decline in honeybee populations has not been changed since the dreary losses have been reported in 2007. Approximately one third of all colonies in the US have been lost every year since then. However, the headlines about the disappearance of the honeybees have boosted a enormous interest in these fascinating insects. Many Beekeepers Association have reported remarkable increase in membership.
Can the hobby beekeeper help to save the honeybees? Absolutely.
Every beekeeper in a community makes a difference! Pollination through the honeybee is essential not only for our food production but also for wildlife.
Learn what it takes to become a beekeeper or how to support the honeybee otherwise!
