3. Put Away Those Pesky Pesticides

This has been a relatively new development in terms of the bee timeline but is having a catastrophic effect on bee populations worldwide. By using industrial pesticides we are coating the bees environment in a form of poison which is leading to Colony Collapse Disorder.

There are methods to reduce the impact of pesticides such as spraying at night and moving towards less toxic derivations but as it stands most pesticides will directly or indirectly harm bee kind.

We’ve added some links below to some articles that give a more in depth look at the situation.

4. Organic And Local Isn't Just Good For You

Yep you heard right, organic farming is great for bees too. Small organic and local farms haven’t got the same mechanised processes that are severely damaging to bees worldwide. In general organic farms will have up to 30% more bees and 50% more pollinating species due to less harmful farming methods. You can read more here.

Europe is currently experiencing huge declines in bee population caused in part by the widespread use of commercial farming techniques. This is also a factor in the UK leading to the loss of far to many species.

As far back as 2013 Dr Lynn Dicks stated the following “Every square kilometre in the UK has lost an average of 11% of bee and hoverfly, between 1980 and 2013, according to the new analysis.”
