How can we help bees? Pollination Ecology Talk

Saturday, June 16th at noon


Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat require pollination. Pollinators such as honeybees are essential for much of what we grow and eat. Unfortunately, honeybee populations, both locally and nationally, have been suffering catastrophic losses.

Join Larry Dapsis, Entomologist with the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, to review honeybee biology and the factors responsible for the current problems they are facing. Also learn about the state of wild pollinators like bumble bees and things that residents can do to help them.
