Have you noticed that there are fewer bees in your garden lately? This is due to many factors which include the use of pesticides and the lack of bees natural habitat. Bees are vital for the cross pollination of flowers, vegetable crops and fruit trees, not only for suburban gardens but also for farms, parklands, plant nurseries and community gardens. There are more than 1500 species of native bees in Australia that play an important environmental role in pollinating plants.
One way you can help is to re-introduce these often-unknown little pollinators back into our environment.
