One of the questions we here at GooBees Honey Emporium is “what can I do to help save the bees?” We have addressed this issue in previous blog posts. In honor of Earth Day 2019 we encourage to check out Earth Day Network’s blog post https://www.earthday.org/campaigns/endangered-species/bees/ . It lists actions you can take now!
Actions You Can Take to Help Us Protect Bees
- Urge your Congress representative to pass the Pollinator Recovery Act https://earthdaynetwork.salsalabs.org/pollinatorrecoveryact/index.html
- Protect the Endangered Species Act https://www.earthday.org/2019/01/31/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-endangered-species-act/
- Support a ban on the use of pesticides, especially neonicotinoid pesticides.
- Become a beekeeper or rent a hive.
- Plant a bee-friendly garden.
The request for beehives and bees has been enormous and we are feverously building hives and dipping them in wax as fast as we can. It truly is a labor of love. Thank you all for the opportunity to serve.
