Plea to Support Bee Population

I`ve seen reports that suggest that honey bees will be completely wiped out in ten years if we do not do something to stop it happening.

Put simply, we just can not afford to allow that to happen. It has been said that the value of commercial crops which benefit from bee pollination is estimated at £100 million to £200 million a year. Honey is worth some £10 million to £30 million.

So, householders are being asked to support more bees by placing beehies in their gardens, balconies, and anywhere else they can thrive. We can also help to support wild bee species such as bumblebees by planting insect-friendly plants in our gardens.
