Time to Bee Smart

The Pollinator Partnership is the largest organization in the world dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems. Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. Without the actions of pollinators agricultural economies, our food supply, and surrounding landscapes would collapse. Laura Davis Adams has overseen the initial organization and the development of the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC). Have questions for Laura? Email us – PLEASE! Excited about joining us? I hope so. This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies. (Note from Mrs. Green – I don’t think I have ever had as many requests for a show topic. The public is concerned about our disappearing bees and this show will hopefully answer many of our questions.)

    Our community garden is planting a pollinator garden in Sept. to help our honeybees and other pollinators and to help educate members and visitors about what they can do to help pollinators and why that is important. We are concerned about what guidelines we should follow when folks want to donate plants from their gardens to avoid neonicotinoids and other harmful pesticides. For example, if a gardener didn’t originally buy an organic plant, but has had it for a number of years ands treated it organically, is it safe for us to transplant?

    We are having problems with Yellow Jackets, they are swarming around our hummingbird feeders, and chasing the birds away. We took the feeders down for several days, put them back and of course yellow jackets returned. We put a homemade trap up which has not worked. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks
