Honey bees need your help!

Due to pests, climate change, habitat loss, management practices, and agrochemicals, 40-68% of honey bee colonies in New York have died each year since 2006 (Cornell CALS, 2020). You can support your friendly pollinators by creating the perfect habitat for them in your own backyard!
