What’s Buzzin’ in Your Backyard
Our honeybees and native pollinators are important to us and we want to inspire you to learn about What’s Buzzin’ in Your Backyard!
If you have flowering plants, then you are already providing pollinator diversity and habitat right in your backyard! Here are some ways you can keep them happy and healthy!
Plan your garden out to where you have flowering plants through out the season
Eliminate pesticide use (did you know that over a billion pounds of pesticides are used each year just in the U.S. alone? Most pesticides stay in the soil for years, leech into waterways and drinking water, drift into wild meadows
Tag us with all of your amazing photos of pollinators @backyard_buzz_pa on Instagram and Facebook, we want to see them!
Wasps and hornets are important too (they do pollinate and help get rid of garden pests), they just need personal space!
Did you know some diseases and viruses can be transmitted to and from honeybees and native pollinators? This is one of the many reasons we want to keep healthy colonies!
We focus on pest and disease prevention by incorporating integrated pest management strategies, using organic treatment options, keeping varroa mite and pest populations low, and keeping synthetic chemicals out of our beehives. We manage, inspect and only ethically harvest hive products when the honeybees make a surplus amount. One of our strategies for decreasing the risk of pests and pathogens spill over is keeping smaller honeybee colonies, and although these colonies produce far less honey than larger colonies, it is important to us to keep the risk of disease spill over to a minimum.
We seek out areas and properties that are rich in nectar sources, creating bee and pollinator diversity and giving us premium local raw honey. We believe in continuing our education and to be up to date with the most recent research in honeybee, pollinator, and environmental studies. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for fun and interesting facts about bees. Thank you and we appreciate you supporting our page!
