Shrinking bee population causes more than just a honey shortage

HOUSTON, TX – The bee population across the country is shrinking, which can cause more than just a shortage of honey. Due to human population where bees used to live, as well as widespread use of pesticides and herbicides bees are dying off.

Without bee pollination many crops can’t grow, including grass crops that feed livestock.  Without taking care of our bees, we may be putting ourselves at risk.
