Honey bee crisis: How can you and I help to save the honey bee? By Inge Lotter

This is where each of us can make a difference. Farmers, municipalities and home gardeners can reverse this trend by choosing bee-friendly plants as ornamentals, windbreaks, on field edges and ridges, and along roadsides. Fortunately, a number of plants used for soil erosion control or for shelter have abundant flowers to feed bees, making the selection of multi-purpose plants more desirable. This has been done on a large scale by farmers and apiarists in Israel, where more than 1 million trees have been planted within the last 10 years to provide forage for bees. In a desert country that goes 6 months of the year without rain, the provision of bee forage has now enabled them to produce more than 3,600 tons of honey per year, enough for export. Other successful programmes have been implemented in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
