National Pollinators Week Kick-Off
June 19, 2017
Today marks the beginning of “National Pollinators Week.”
Honeybees are responsible for pollinating over 110 crops that we eat and use every day. Unfortunately, while more than one-third of all U.S. crop production requires insect pollination, honeybee hives continue to rapidly decline. According to the USDA, bee-pollination commodities account for $20 billion in annual U.S. agricultural production.
Watch RFD-TV all week for stories on the importance of saving these pollinators.
