Resources from Dr. Rosemary’s ‘What’s bugging the bees?’ café

Thank you everyone for joining us for our latest café ‘What’s bugging the bees?’ with Dr Rosemary Malfi! We had a lot of great questions that brought up some resources we would like to share with everyone.

How can we help Pollinators?

How you can help pollinators:
Plant flowers! (natives are best)
Make sure they are free of pesticides
Mow your lawn less often to allow wildflowers (e.g. clover) to grow. Every 2-3 weeks is recommended
Bee-friendly farming practices
support conservation organizations like the Xerces Society, which will work to promote pollinator health
