Pollinator Week shines spotlight on bee health

06/17/2013 - 12/31/2100

Pollinators, which include not only bees, but also birds, bats, butterflies, moths, flies, beetles, wasps, and small mammals, are responsible for pollinating nearly one-third of every bite of food we eat, according to a media statement from the Pollinator Partnership. The global value of crops pollinated by bees is estimated to be nearly $217 billion, the group says.

Farmers and other landowners can make a big contribution in solving a major crisis in agriculture by participating in Pollinator Week, June 17-23, 2013.
