Honey bees are important to agriculture and you. They pollinate many of our favorite foods. But often, bees are not able to find enough food for themselves. It’s important to supply honey bees the diverse food sources they need to stay healthy.
The Feed a Bee initiative was started by Bayer CropScience, and is one example of improving colony health. It creates forage areas with a diversity of bee-attractant plants. This initiative includes a goal of planting 50 million flowers to support honey bee health. To help grow 50 million flowers for bees in 2015 or just commit to growing a bee-attractant plant, visit http://feedabee.com/.
