Support the Bees

Bees play a critical role in our ecosystem, but are facing the threat of disappearing due to modern agricultural practices, lack of habitat and increasing stressors.

The bees habitat is degrading. Industrial insecticides get into the bees' nectar and pollen and air pollution limits the bees' ability to find flowering plants.

Over one third of the world's crop production is pollinated by bees. With the disappearance of bees we face increased food prices and potential global shortages.

The Heritage Bee Co. carefully selects host locations that are best for the bees. We encourage our hosts to plant pollinator gardens and provide a water source for the bees. Our natural treatment-free approach means working in sync with natural processes. This supports the bees and restores their habitat, working in sync with nature, not against her. We believe our approach supports the bees and is sustainable over the long term.
