Honey Bees

National Honey Bee Day was August 17. Did you celebrate?

Well, you should have because honey bees pollinate many of our important food crops. Apples, broccoli and blueberries and plenty of others. And then there is that honey!

You might have read that there have been many problems with bees in New Jersey and across the country. Scientists are still not sure if the cause (or causes) are fungal, viral or from toxic pesticides.

In case you have ever thought about having your own hive, the  NJ Beekeepers Association has chapters throughout the state.
