Protecting The Pollinators

Recently, the Ontario government launched the Pollinator Health Action Plan in response to substantial declines in most animal pollinator populations since 2006. The Health Plan spans quite a wide range of issues at various levels from beekeepers to agriculture. There is also some good, solid information for gardeners.

  • use loose leaves on gardens
  • rethink the use of bee hotels and bundles
