Bees have been in the news because their populations are declining. Habitat for bees includes both the territory, as well as the types of plants and flowers that are in their territory. Natural influences such as disease and mites have taken their toll, but human influence is starving bees to death. Single crop farms of wheat and corn starve bees of pollen, as does the use of herbicides. Pesticides also harm bees.

Did you know?

Globally, about 75% of all food crops rely on pollinators such as bees.
