Other Ways to Help Your Local Bees and the Environment
Stop using chemicals in your garden and on your yard! Pesticides, insecticides, and weed killers are powerful and persistent and kill bees and other beneficial insects. Consider biological and organic controls like ladybugs!Grow native!
Growth plants native to your region. Select plants that produce a lot of nectar and pollen. Ask you local garden supply shop for details.
Buy organic! Some seeds contain clothianidin and other systemic insecticides that kill bees and other insects. Read the labels and if in doubt don’t buy them. Organic seed costs only pennies more than conventional. Some commercial compost contains imidacloprid, a very deadly insecticide. This chemical gets into the soil and water thereby absorbed by plants, ingested by pets, people, bees, and butterflies. Go organic as much as you can.
“Frangiosa Farms is committed to responsible beekeeping in the face of bee decline through community education, backyard beekeeping, and support of locally sourced pure and simple honey. I raise my bees with organic practices and love to talk about the wonderful world of bees and the benefits of local raw honey.”
